I'm not an experienced HAM in anyway but I'd love to make a QO-100 QSO. I'm slowly getting there while trying to build the equipment necessary. But as a SW engineer I'm amazed that a satellite can be launched in this day and age and still be vulnerable to Denial of Service attacks. So a malicious person could with a few hundred of dollars worth of equipment and a knowledge level equal to a HAM certificate can knock out a multi million dollar satellite up-link and the search area for the culprit would be 1/3 of globe with limited possibility of getting caught?
Please explain to me how the above statements are wrong?
