Hi Domenico,

I agree with you. I've donated and want P3E as well, but the hams that
only have Broken handhelds, Dead batteries, and Rubber ducks need a
satellite too.  We must be considerate of those that aren't serious
about satellite.  Those who only want to pass grids and prefer the
circus clown CB like atmosphere of an FM bird.
