maybe because you can work an fm leo with an ht and arrow antenna. you do
not need to be technical to do that. i have not been on a satellite since
ao40 died because there is no chalenge to me to work an fm satellite. i have
given a few demos over the years but i much prefer rag chewing with someone
in europe or asia than a 5 second grid square transfer.
