George -- I agree completely about having a bunch of these on hand.
Especially if we can first make a few copies, run them in some diverse
environments and just generally kick the tires in a way that most
cubesat projects don't have the opportunity to.

William has provided a means of injecting a CW beacon. I wonder if
'we' could add to this, say, BPSK, which worked so well on Delfi c3,
or an FSK channel.
