I agree Clint, and there is obviously room for both systems in our store.

When can I expect you to have the first batch ready to drop ship to the

think you need a $500 antenna system to work LEOs - and that is true, but on
the same token, a $15 tape measure antenna will produce disappointing
results in most cases if someone is trying to make QSOs on SO-50.


I believe that - properly marketed - AMSAT-NA could make more profit selling
500 tape measure beam kits this year at $25 retail to schools, individuals,
and clubs - than the profit they will realize selling a handful of $500
antenna systems.

ESPECIALLY with the FOX projects coming up. What better way to get MORE
PEOPLE INVOLVED in the satellites than to offer them an affordable and
educational DIY antenna building project for their new satellites?
