Hi folks

How about an acceptable use policy for the satellite users.
There are a small number of frequent users that have a disproportionate 
use of the satellites. How do you expect to grow the organization if 
new people cant even get into the satellites. I'm a rare user now 
because of this. I can barely get into them with 50 watts.

On another note, I report very good results using a thirty dollar 
ground plane scanner antenna from radio shack as a uhf recieving 
antenna connected to 15 feet of 9913 cable and using an arr uhf preamp.
I have workable reception of even so-50 close to the horizon.

Take care, pat
