Hi Peter, KD7MW
I also really miss AO-10, AO-13 and particularly AO40 and I
losted a lot of money to get ready in all modes for AO40 but
actually after 10 years that AO40 died my antennas are becoming
rusty and metal scrap over the roof.
Sorry,it was nice until lasted but in my opinion there is no
chance and no way to get a new HEO satellite in the time to
come for many years almost for me......... 81 years old !
