Hi David, G0MRF
It seem to me that while the Universities are becaming tennis players
we collect telemetry without to be involved in their experiments and
this is like to only pick up their balls and run with it.
The only difference is that each University receive governement
contributions to build the satellite while we radioamateurs invest a lot
of personal money to build our own satellite stations.
Since the Radioamateur Community make a worldwide service to the
Universities my idea is to collect their TLM upon official donations to
be used to build our Orbiting Satellites Carrying Amateur Radio i.e.
satellites with linear transponders to talk each other.
Is the Amateur Satellite Service becaming an endangered species ?
It will became an endangered species if P3-E and EAGLE will be not
placed in orbit as soon as possible but this requires our contributions
............or not ?
Do you like my TLM ?............Please donate !
