You totally miss the point here. This is MY satellite and if I want to 
work YOU on that pass I will do WHATEVER it takes. I usually run 100W 
up to AO-51 anyways to make sure everybody hears ME! If that's not 
sufficient, ok .. let's bring the 1KW brick. No problem. The world is 
ending, we all know that already so I need to make sure that I get all 
the grids right now and here. The time YOU spent typing this email you
could've already gotten in your friggin car and driven out to a new one
for ME to work you. Clayton, Clayton .. we have to work on this slacker
attitude of yours. Tsts ...

Just my $23

p.s.: For the ironically challenged, this was irony. I don't run 1KW up 
to any satellite as everybody knows it's not enough.

p.p.s.: Ups, I did it again :)
