[amsat-bb] L-Band Equipment List

I have one of the "rare" DEMI 144/1268 converters; does 15w out.  Not 
many were made/sold before AO-40 crashed.  Also a 45 loop-yagi for 1268.

I have a venerable FT736R (with only 2m/70cm) for satellite operation 
(future).  But if the mode will be LV (1268up/145dn) I will have to 
use a different radio for either uplink or downlink as the FT736R 
does not do in-band duplex on 144.  I have two other radios that will 
do 2m allmode but it gets more complicated for tuning.  FT736R has 
satellite mode for 2m/70cm (probably one of the first to do 
that).  If the mode will be LU then all is fine.

I also still have my mode-S preamp and two Drake downconverters if 
ever that band is reactivated.

PS: not QRV on satellites (yet)
