Let me get this straight:

Flex 1500   $650
Flex 3000   $1700

Plus transverters:

L144-28HP $480

L432-28HP $500

That's $3,330!!!!!

The info and concept might be good, but that's it.

Get a Funcube Dongle Pro+ (wish AMSAT NA would negotiate a deal with Howard
and sell them to raise funds) if you want a SDR receiver and an FT847,
TS2000, IC9100  and you are miles ahead.
