Hi Lee, WA7HQD
Instead to go to a single channel FM satellites actually operating
AO-27, AO-51, SO-50 please try on the linear transponder satellites
VO-52, FO-29 and OSCAR-7 plenty of room fom many CW and
SSB QSO's at the same time.
VO-52 has actually the strongest down link signal between 145. 875 to
145.925 MHz using the indian linear transponder continuously operating
24/hours with no limitations due of ecliples.
FO-29 is also working very well in Mode-J and OSCAR-7 in Mode A
and Mode-B do permit nice QSO's between USA and Europe.
Why to vaste time with the FM satellites for very small on a single channel
to exchange only call letters and locators at most into a terrific QRM ?
