 Thanks for your thoughts Dave, While I have very strong thoughts/feelings
 about P3D I do enjoy and support AMSAT's other programs and hardware.
 I suppose frustration is the biggest factor, that and a declining
 presence in the space program of purely Amateur space-craft missions.

 As you have noted we tend to be more "Baggage" then anything else for
 Educational/Scientific endevours. That hurts!
