Thanks for the note - I am just back from JAMSAT and was traveling and
working when this was posted. I replied on the AMSAT-DL forum.

For both technical and humanitarian reasons, it is an outstanding
achievement. Phase 4 Ground has already benefited from observing,
measuring, and experimenting with QO-100. The success has informed our
engineering and provided inspiration and motivation for doing the difficult
DSP and coding theory work required to fully implement DVB-S2 and DVB-S2X.
