It is nice to know that I am not alone in my way of thinking.
While we all want to encourage new people to come into the ranks of
Amateur radio, we most of all want the to do it successfully and to
enjoy their experiences.
I will offer one last Southern Folk Wisdom on the subject with regards
as to what is essential for a successful and pleasant satellite
operation, YOU NEED A PREAMP! IF YOU CAN'T HEAR YOURSELF ON THE
SATELLITE YOU ARE PROBABLY CAUSING QRM!
Now for the Southern Folk Wisdom: /"Even a blind hog finds a hickory nut
every once in a while....."/ In other words, you may occasionally hear
the satellite under ideal conditions WITHOUT a preamp, but WITH a preamp
you will have a much more pleasant experience on the satellite and so
will all the others that are on that pass with you!
Yah'll all have a nice day! I have a schedule on FO29 with Ireland! I
will be using a preamp!
