Hi John,

My concern with adding 10 meters to a competition class VHF/UHF high end satellite rig, is that the rig will turn into another mediocre HF rig with VHF/UHF added on.

If we do start building Mode-A  satellites in the future, then we can always use Two radios, a dedicated HF and a High performance Sat rig.

The primary goal is to have the engineers put all the money into a kick but 6/2/440 transceiver.

Thank you very much for your comments.
