And how was it before the "human error" ? I'm wondering why an
astronaut can not handle an amateur transceiver. If the user interface
is too complicate it would be a good idea to give him a dedicated
notebook so he can click in a menu for Packet, school contact, repeater,
SSTV aso. If this problem is not solved, it is fruitless to discuss about
new modes. My 2 cents about this theme.
