Re: where does our money go?

I'd agree you need a printed journal.  My local contest club did away 
with a paper newsletter a couple years ago to save costs.  It did save 
costs (I'm the treasurer and so I know this), but it also killed the 
newsletter.  I don't remember when the last one was published and put 
on the web.  And even when they were published, I think I may have read 
and downloaded one of them.

I see no problem with putting pdf's or whatever on the web.  But AMSAT 
should not stop publishing the journal.
