Hi Joanne,
    I have a question... (and I'm going to use the global "we" here ) are we  
clairvoyant? ESP enhanced? psychic?   maybe psycho? hehe 

     No I don't think we have those qualities....  so how are we going to get 
a dose of reality here??? you yourself say the are "behind the scenes" out of 

"AMSAT" stays pretty quiet on the internal goings on...  both on failures and 
on successes...  when bad things happen like when AO40 popped... info was 
very slow in coming...  it was over a year before info about the valve covers 
came out...

When good things happen ... like the warble on L band being fixed....  it 
didn't even get any press... that was fixed months and months ago...

Maybe the BOD is way too busy to get on a sat... maybe they need to stand up 
and let us know what they have been up to...

But I for one agree with Luc  that they should make some time to get on the 
sats to better understand what their members are dealing with... good and
