Now I understand!
Why should we support AMSAT. I already have a cell phone. I could give you 
my number. We could set up a conference call. Everyone can talk and listen 
...worldwide....and interrupt each other....for a lot less cost than putting 
up our own satellite. Better yet... there is the internet...Skype...complete 
with video. We can talk all over the world. Why should we spend money on our 
own satellites when somebody else has already paid the bill? No pile-ups, 
...Problem solved.   :-))

KM9U...just a fellow amateur wondering why. ;-))

Hi Peter,NH6VB

I believe that Stefan,VE4NSA never worked or was listening
on a HEO othervise he will be not in favour only on the Cubesat
and I am sure he will pull also like me and many others for P3E

To give  Stefan a demonstration of what I am stating I have sent
to all of you a WAV file 3 minutes long with a QSO via AO40 in
wich we are three of us (IW2ERR-i5UXJ and i8CVS) talking like
into a telephone without QSB or QRM and nice audio quality
for hours much better than in 20 meters because we can interrupt
each other at the same time.

Sorry the QSO is in italian but it is sufficient to say that if Stefan
ever worked a HEO he have missed a lot.

Also sorry that my message to Peter,NH6VB including the WAV
file bounced back to me.
