Segway this argument to the 10m uplink now 100% available on PSAT PSK-31
which virtually no one is using.
> With OSCAR 6 and 7... ten meter downlinks, it was just a matter of
adding two meter transmit capability to an HF station.
For PSAT PSK31 it is even simpler. Add a UHF FM HT to your HF station!
> many... people that worked OSCARs, 6, 7, 8, and RS birds never graduated
from Mode A...
> Just like many of the FM satellite users never graduate from FM.
We give them what they ask for, a multi-user simultaneous transponder
supporting dozens of simultaneous contacts, yet we have only seen 1 or 2
stations at a time give it a try.
Just an observation. I thought this PSK-31 linerar uplink with FM
downlink would make everyone happy. It's a foot in both camps..
