g6jyb <mjniman@...>
 

Thanks for all inputs so far

THE RSGB DRAFT REPOSNSE IS NOW ONLINE

Web page:

Short Link:

This may be used for your own ideas as well as for comments back to me on substance and typos

Please note there are items in this draft that so far may have been missed in other considerations inc on:-

a) the answer to Q1,
b) impact on European amateurs, if the bands are lost
c) the 2300-2310 option offer
d) a wider range of other measures that would complement the technical support offer that I am glad UKuG and BATC are up for

As with other efforts I would be glad of formal endorsements by UKuG, BATC and Amsat-UK who have contributed to various aspects

regards

Murray

Based on feedback we will update it add boilerplate etc prior to teh 5pm Monday deadline
