Re: Now: Mnemonic and icon wanted - Was Re: Doppler's First name?

Those of you who flew Estes model rockets as kids will no doubt remember
the "Apogee" model from the old Estes catalog. They would presumably not
be selling a "Perigee" rocket (guaranteed to reach MINIMUM altitude or
your money back). My only trouble is remembering how many p's and e's to
use (Appogee? Appoge?).   And old 1960's Estes catalogs can go for a
small fortune on ebay.

A congressman in Washington was making a speech some years back about
privatizing certain functions normally done by government. He used as
one example "Why does the National Weather Service need to operate its
own Doppler Radar? Why can't the Doppler Company do that on their own?"
