My suggestion is not to use the amsat-bb for immediate spots like this. The 
reason is that the outgoing email is sent as a first on the list gets the first 
email and the guy at the bottom of the list won't get notification for 10-15-30 
minutes. This could be make the last guy miss a rare station.

I would suggest using the IRC which is immediate rather than delayed by email 
(amsat-bb). Or, use both. You are all welcome to use the IRC (Internet Relay 
Chat) that I set up for the Houston AMSAT Net but was used very successfully 
during the beginning of the AO-40 days. 

For information on connecting to the IRC visit http://www.amsatnet.com (direct 
link is http://www.amsatnet.com/irc.html)
