Re: New to Amateur Radio and Sattellites

Thanks for the information on the bandit?  I answered him thinking he was
legitimate.  I must admit it seemed strange that he left out his name, at
least in the first email.  In subsequent emails he added a name but as you
say it may not be who he says he is.

I noticed that he has the "tilde" character "~" in front of his name, which
is often used to designate "approximation".  I wonder if he is being
cleaver.  Maybe I am thinking about this too much too.  I hope we are all
wrong, I like to think these things don't happen.
