  I would be interested to know what the highest data rate achieved from an
amateur satellite is/was. I seem to recall some sats using 38.4K but not
sure if this is true, or how successful they were.

  I'm guessing that use of 'normal' amateur radio rigs, eg ICOM 910 isnt
really practical for these higher data rates (although I know of an add one
unit from Symek, which will provide higher bandwidth from the 910, and other

  Is anyone planning to use a higher data rate?

  I'd be interesting to read any comments folk might have.
