AMSAT's efforts has raised high awareness to a forgotten aspect of this big hobby. HAMs will be buying SAT capable radios, antennas, software and more to make their first SAT contact. An increase in AMSAT memberships is good but I just hope the SAT equipment manufactures donate very generously to AMSAT awarding AMSAT for bringing back a near dead sales area. I also hope the MFG see the benefit to designing/marketing SAT specific radios (like the old FT-236/326). We could use a D-310G (as a sister to the B-310G) to minimize the beam size and make an eggbeater usable.
