Some of us could care less if you have MD after your name!  I don't know
what crawled up this guy's shorts!

Thank you for all the work you've put in to the bird and for getting it up
there and getting it working.  You have earned the right to put whatever you
want after your name including "Satellite God."

Perhaps once this guy helps build a satellite, helps test it, helps launch
it and helps commission it, and puts in a lot of time and money of his own,
then perhaps then he can complain about people's names or titles.

Some hams have no other life.

Don't change it.  Big deal.  You earned your title.  And it's appropriate
that anyone addressing you call you Dr. Mills.

Thanks for ALL your hard work and thanks to the rest of the control team!
