sound … XW-1 FM and AFSK A very good example for discipline and effective QSO on an FM satellite :-)

Digital Store-and-Forward (BBS)

I could easily connect the BBS – but it’s no good idea to use both systems (FM transponder and BBS) at the same time.
The 1k2 AFSK signals disturbs every FM QSO and vice versa.
