Re: Hateful few

Hi Roger,
Please don't take one message from one person as the type of people that
make up Amsat, and the list. Please disregard that message, and we welcome
ALL newcomers! The list is here to discuss satellites, and to help out
newcomers. I hope you will please stay around, and enjoy the great group of
people we have here just waiting for your questions about satellites. Have
you tried any satellites yet? Once again welcome aboard! 73...

Tim Pickett
Michigan Amsat Area Coordinator
