RE: AMSAT.ORG overload

I'd suggest that people looking for instant updates on the AO-40 situation
try IRC.  The use of IRC will reduce the number of small messages on the BB
and provide quicker responses for those seeking status reports.  I have
posted the details to the list in the past 24 hours, but for those who have
missed it, here they are again.

IRC net - Chatnet (chatnet.org)  I'm using the server:  
portland.or.us.chatnet.org, port 6667
Channel  #amsat
