With the ARRL strongly supporting AMSAt and P3D perhaps we should pitch
a column idea for QST called, "While We Wait". There are numerous
experiments and active Sats that many people outside this group don't
even know exist. A monthly column explaining "what else" one can busy
themselves with while we wait on a launch for P3D would go a long way
towards keeping interest in the Sats until we get the "big" one up!

Just some random noise...
