One of the really sad things about tragedies is how politicians and others line up to make some cheap publicity over the suffering and death of others. I thought 'Uncle Bob' might do something insensitive like that but was very surprised to see you stoop so low.
Anyone trying to promote a a communications systems that works for at best 10 or 15 minutes every 90 minutes as a viable emergency system is grasping at straws. Add the chaotic single channel nature of the FM sats and you have an even harder sales job on your hands.

I am interested to know if someone in BB has used
or is using the actual Amateur Satellites during the
emergency occurred in Oklahoma and Texas because
of the actual tornado's.
We know from TV that almost 50 peoples died and if
the Amateur Satellites were used with success that will
be a useful opportunity to demonstrate worldwide to
the autorities that our satellites are useful and necessary
during the emergency.
The call letters of the Amateurs partecipating as well
the FM and linear Amateur Satellites used to help into
the emergency will be appreciated.
Thanks for any info.
