Think of it as a donation to have a L/S system built, launched and have
human spaceflight certified. It is much more than just the cost of the
hardware for the antenna. Have you looked at the total cost for Eagle
for comparison? This is a bargain.

    I am currently working on the microwave patch antenna's for Eagle
with Lou Mc Faddin W5DID and Stan Wood.    Pay me for the materials and
I will make you a few copies.     I can even alter them to your mounting
configuration.  I am sure Lou and Stan could tweak them for a nominal
fee.  Materials should cost less than 100.00$ US.    I could not in good
conscience be a part in any way to paying anyone 100 grand for a couple
simple antenna's.
