  Jimmy, I'll email to you a PDF file that Tim N3TL sent to me about getting started in (FM) satellites. I don't remember if Tim and Patrick WD9EWK were co-authors, or if it is Patrick's baby alone. :-)  It sure helped me clarify things; the only reason I haven't been on the sats is my own laziness, not because of this manual! :-)
