The guidelines for AMSAT-BB are sent out to each new subscriber. If you need to get a new copy of this message (and you are a current subscriber), you can obtain one by email by sending the command "intro amsat-bb" to majordomo@amsat.org.

I quote here the pertinent paragraphs:

The subject message doesn't fall exactly within the explicit permissions granted above, but in my opinion it is within the intent, which is to permit *informative* messages that are likely to be of interest to many readers, even if they also advance a commercial interest.
