That is the most childish bovine crap I have seen in awhile, at
equal to any of the circus clown atmosphere you disdain.
P3E is off in the future, I don't even think the sat is close to
ready to launch,
and then you have the launch itself to consider, I want P3E also but I also
understand its not going to be soon.
And yes I have donated to P3E.
On the other hand FOX is NOW we have a means of getting into
is the biggest hurdle, so it needs funding NOW to get completed and on that
And yes I have donated to FOX several times, and I don't even get on the
Leo's all that often.
Can LEO's be a zoo at times? sure but so was AO-40 at times also...
I was on AO-40 and remember L band users louder than the beacon, I remember
U band users pumping the AGC and lelia chasing their butt all over the sat.
You don't like LEO's Vince? fine.. then slide over and get the
of the way because FOX is on the move NOW.
I would prefer to have HEO's and LEO's rather than nothing
and just listen to dead static each day.
