Two thoughts regarding your comments on the machine-decoded modes:
1. Jason and WOLF (especially if it ever moves into real time) have the
ability to move enough information in a reasonable amount of time, to permit
2-way contacts. It seems proper to be testing that approach. The band seems
wide enough to accomodate the operation.
2. Please do beat the drum to get more QRSS fellows to beacon in clusters.
There's been fairly little of that operation this year. And unless we're
notified over here in Western Pond-Land, there won't be anyone looking.
Since I'm out a lot in the evening, I will probably miss messages sent at
2300 that someone is going to beacon for a few hours. A little advance
warning would be a help.
