Yep and because I've only been on AO-40 a little over two weeks and because
I have a BBQ dish, all of my observations and experience are invalid.

I was right years ago when I thought that satellites were operated by an
exclusive club.  It's no wonder that with attitudes like yours that Amsat
has trouble getting funding.

I know absolutely zip, nothing, nada.  My experience, short as it may be,
counts for nothing.

Thanks for encouraging me and all the others out there.
