Re: AO-40



Kevin:

I had some doubts about the Phase 3D idea.  However, it was AMSAT's decision
to go this way and we should all be 100% behind the project.  No hardware is
ever 100% foolproof.  Just ask the auto manufacturers.  And the team is far
from failure at this point.  You should be sking the team what you can do to
help instead of second guessing them. I'm not surprised at your comments -
you seem to have a sour outlook in general.

By the way, we're working on the 1500 watt amp for working UO-14 at Field
Day.
