Re: FM Satellites (Millennium Project)

Yes, that satellite is called PANSAT and we are running a lead article on it
in the July/August issue via the good work of members Steve Bible, N7HPR and
Dan Sakoda, KD6DRA.  (I believe Dan James, NN0DJ provided a list of articles
running in this issue in a recent ANS post.)  The issue is currently at the
printers and should be coming to a mailbox near your QTH by NLT 10AUG99.

BTW, I also have a great article by John Magliacane on the design of his
satellite modem that we plan to run in an upcoming issue of The AMSAT
Journal.  We are working a few legal issues on the article and it when
complete we will run it.
