Amen. Also there are TWO flight ready PSK-31 uplink with FM downlink
transponders also ready to fly built By Mirek at Brno University. Ideal
for a Cubesat.
They allow up to 20 or more simultaneous PSK-31 users on a 28 MHz uplink
to all appear full duplex in the 435 MHz FM downlink that anyone can
receive on any FH HT. Run PSK31 software and see all the conversations
and transmit all 8 minutes of the pass and join the fun talking to
everyone at once..
All the advantages of linear transponders (20 simultaneous users) and all
the advantages of FM (simple 5 Khz Doppler tuning using any old FM radio).
And it fits on a 3" square card.

All we need is someone to fly it.
I have a 500' roll. Send me an SASE to my callbook address and note to remind me how much you need. If you feel so compelled, drop a donation in the Fox paypal widget on my QRZ page.
This is an open offer to all. I'll send reasonable amounts if you send an SASE with sufficient postage.
