ditto-hang on to that L & S stuff for the next ( if, when) HEO. In the mean time remember, "this is rocket science, and that ain't cheap"!

I feel sorry for all satellite operators that have never had the
opportunity to try out a HEO. I never demonstrated one from the shack, but

fascination at equipment and at all you could hear. Most of the time there
was always some DX too.
