Richard, even Ron Broadbent has suggested "let bygones be bygones".  I'm
shocked by your attitude !  I believe AMSAT is floundering and so too is
amateur radio, we need to push the hobby in an open way to young people.  I
believe single minded obsession with Phase 3D and packet satellites is a
wrong way to go.  Also I'm not happy with the proliferation of almost
inaccessible satellites from universities, why the secrecy ?

I have done more than most, to introduce young people into satellite
technology and I was first interested in radio at the age 9.  I'm sad to see
the way things are going.
