I thought AO-40 *was* an EasySat. It sure looks and feels
like one!

Frankly, I wonder why we pay so much attention to the
whiners. Their minds are made up: AO-40 is a priori
incomprehensible and inaccessible, and they don't want
to know otherwise. It upsets their mythology. Technology
has nothing to do with it.

AMSAT would be lots better off without the whiners.
Quit whining, and *do* something - like building the
kind of satellite you whiners seem to think we need.
