To be clear, the COST of ARISS to AMSAT is $7 per member but members 
only DONATE 0.25 cents each for ARISS. 

The $6.75 difference per member is generously given away by those who have 
been elected because they believe ARISS is in the best interest of AMSAT.

Somebody has to be "wrong" here...4000 members give a total of $1000 a
year for ARISS yet AMSAT spends $30,000 a year.

How much *louder* do members have to speak to get a point across?
