Hello Robert and All,

I had the pleasure and good fortune to attend the AMSAT-UK Colloquium 
this past weekend where Robin Haighton updated the attendees on the 
current thinking re: "Project JJ".  I won't go into detail because these 
things are regularly posted, but I will say that the design is FAR from 
final, and the BoD has their ears tuned to the AMSAT-BB.  I may be 
mistaken, but from what I recall, there was a call for discussion for 
the "next" satellite this past spring.  I do remember there being a 
*whole* lot of discussion on this board, and that discussion, along with 
lessons learned have shaped the current thinking on Project JJ design.

This listserve will continue to shape that thinking.
