I have been reading about the need for HEO satellites and the reasons
we don't have them. I wonder why the folks that wont the
HEO's so bad never show up on AO-07 or VO-52. Most passes it is joe
K3SZH and maybe two others at most on AO-07 and
I hardly ever hear anyone on VO-52. The birds that have all the users
are the FM sats. I would love to see a HEO built but if we
are not going to use what we have what is the point.
