Yes, Kevin, it is space based radio, I agree, that does nothing but promote
NASA under the guise of "educating the children"....those programs do 
nothing to
promote amateur satellites and their operation....it is negative in 
fact...It drains
much needed dollars that should be used for AMATEUR RADIO SPACE 
COMMUNICATIONS, and developement of those communications, for which, I 
think, most of us belong to AMSAT......
