[amsat-bb] SO-50 Pre-amp?

In front of scores of audiences over the years, I have never disappointed 
audiences and failed to hear SO-50 -  without ever using a pre-amp with 
either my tape measure beam or Arrow Satellite antennas ...

Such handheld ops, as low as 10-15 degrees of elevation, can be worked 
without a pre-amp.

I'd hate to see you invest in a 440 pre-amp, when the next "big" easily 
worked project will have a 2M downlink ... (grin)
