Flex 6700 on the ISS

I saw the link below.  I reflected on the currently running ads in QST CQ etc.  Beautifully simple, without explanation of what that exactly means....just don't think it conveys a brand message.

But, here's an idea for you....."if its good enough for NASA it should be for you too"

Well just a thought guys.

    "If the NASA material is to be used for commercial purposes, including advertisements, it must not explicitly or implicitly convey NASA's endorsement of commercial goods or services."

    You can't/shouldn't commercialize everything.

    But it is entirely cool that their radios are overhead.

    Then just state the obvious. If it’s good enough to be used in the ISS it’s should be good enough for you. And have a pic of ISS

    Use of the name "NASA" = explicit.
    Use of just the ISS reference in advertising = implicit endorsement.
    Neither is allowed.

    Disseminating the information like they did in this community is the appropriate use.

    These guys know what they're doing.

    I think EME received QSLs from dozens of EME stations at Areciebo [sp] radio telescope (even though time didn't allow a reply on air) and now the new FT8 DXpedition mode are two more exciting mind boggling inovations.

    Flex missed a great opportunity!!! When Musk launched his car into space with the Heavy Lift rocket, their should have been a Flex Radio on the dash,, I mean the robot needed a way to talk back to earth.. That would have been cool!!! :-)
