I think everyone noticed that there was a decrease in activity on the air of the excellent QO-100 satellite due to the lack of new stations. I want to offer for discussion a way to increase the number of new stations and territories.
It is about creating a gateway from one of the short-wave ranges. For example, conversion the spectrum 14010-14030 kHz (CW) on the uplink to a frequencys 10489575-10489595 kHz. Our correspondents can transmit to SW and hear themselves and us on WEB SDR, therefore QSO through the gateway is possible! It is especially interesting to place such a gate on the border of the QO-100, for example, in Brazil, and we will receive many new correspondents and new territories.
The technical implementation of the gateway is not complicated, but it can be discussed after receiving the answer to the questions:
- Are such gateways interesting for the amateur radio community?
-How will AMSAT-DL react to this?
