Nick, Zach et al,
The suggestion for an L band uplink, or any uplink or downlink above 70cm
for that matter, is very welcome. We absolutely need to populate the higher
UHF and SHF bands in a way that we can justify their allocation to the
amateur radio and amateur satellite services when we amateurs sit with
regulators to defend them. Higher bands are more challenging to use, but
they do offer advantages -- wider bandwidths, higher data rates, etc.
