WHERE IS THIS ANNOUNCEMENT? ...... Sorry for shouting

I certainly haven't seen it here. Perhaps I am missing some posts.

The use of TLA's ( three letter acronyms )  Please don't assume that 
everyone knows what you mean. What does BOD stand for? perhaps Board Of 
Directors? I don't know. The AMSAT NA site doesn't appear to have been 
updated on the 13th May - TWO weeks ago, so no info here. There is a lot of 
discussion here about something I haven't seen.

Please enlighten me.

Remember, this reflector is global, and abbreviations which are obvious in 
one location mean diddly-squat ( nothing ) elsewhere.

I.E. in these parts of central midlands UK - Heanor/ Ilkeston, Derbyshire , 
there is a saying " ow was lokin' at may lik a foul wi a brokin neck "

It would not mean anything to most folk, but around here, this is 
translated as a " funny look " ( he/she was looking at me like a fowl with 
a broken neck )
