I've looked at that site and have trouble locating simple things
like Downlink frequency or any payload description.  I find it a
hard to use site with information hidden and buried and very
slow (probably due to the interest and high traffic load right

I'm sure its just me.  But with the slow speed, I still h avent
found the basic info that a ham would be intrested in..
