Re: SEA Launch

Also -- Bob Bruninga (WB4APR) worked valliantly to get a small
payload ready for precisely this launch. He got the hardware ready
but our Dept. of State refused to grant the export waiver for
the hardware. You may not be aware, but >>ALL<< satellites are
treated the same as hazardous munitions under international
commerce provisions. So don't get the idea that there was not
an attempt to fly an amateur payload on this launch!
