Hi John, AA5JG
You missed the point my friend because many of us extensively uses the
linear satellites like VO-52 ,FO-29 and OSCAR-7
By the way they are LEO satellites but the serious satellite community need
and pull for almost one HEO satellite to communicate for hours with
amateurs in all continents like we did before years ago using OSCAR-10
OSCAR-13 and AO10 wich performance you cannot imagine and that you
probably never tested before.
I suggest you to read the old AMSAT-BB messages available in the AMSAT
archive beginning from the early 2000 to 2004 when AO40 was alive and
well.Here is the address:
Many of us remember AO-10, AO-13, and AO-40 and we missed those
In addition many of those old satellite users and microwave experimenters
are now disappointed and abandoned both AMSAT and the satellite activity.
No projects for HEO satellites in the future ? No brilliant prospects for
the Amateur Satellite Service if AMSAT-DL will be not able to find in
short time a launch opportunity for P3-E !
