Thanks for the support Doug.  Yep, those boyscouts sure liked
the SSTV pics from MIR, even if it was just a print-out from my
past work.

They also cannot wait to see them real time.  Several of them

Maybe Cliff wants to be the last satellite operator in this world.
Not if I can help it.

Suing gun manufacturers over murders involving
