Likewise I still have my 33-inch offset dish with 6 turn RHCP helix 
feed with MKU LNA and two Drake converters: one unmodified with 
123-MHz out and other modified for 435-MHz out.  Worked very well on 
AO-40 mode-US and mode-LS.

Hi Bob,

No immediate plans for AMSAT-NA but GOLF will give us opportunities to
play with a variety of bands over time so I won't rule it out.? Anyway,
I still have my K5GNA downconverter and BBQ dish on my array so I'm in a
reasonable position to influence a way to put them back into use if I
get a hankerin'!?? :-D

of down converters and associated equipment, waiting for 
"something".  I know the five & dime is being planed.
