A satellite with 25 channels would probably help. LOL This is why
a lot of the old guard satellite ops wish for the translator days
with 100-KHz of bandwidth and CW/SSB. But I do NOT want to start up
a RANT on this -everyone knows this.
Single channel FM repeater satellites will always be saddled with
this problem - too many users/one channel. Goes with the
territory. that is reality. Another reality: lots of unused
satellites while everyone is on a single satellite - why?
when I get my rotating array QRV I will be on VO-52 and AO-7.., any
maybe HO-68 ocassionally. On AO-51 I will be trying mode-VS
