As this thread continues (raising funds) lets all keep in mind that 
as a non-profit organization, AMSAT can't do whatever it wants to 
turn a buck...there are some legal ramifications of maintaining that 
not for profit status. I don't know if accepting Web advertising 
falls into a problem area or not but it has been discussed many times 
before and always rejected. Perhaps that is why?
