FYI ... I used to be an AMSAT NA member, but I let it lapse. I own a brand
new AZ/EL rotor and fiberglass cross boom that I have NEVER used (no, they
are not for sale)   I have only made one (or was it two) sat contact(s) on
Mode A equipment. My interest has wained considerably .. yet, for some
reason, I still stay subscribed to this list ;-)

Bob and I don't always see eye-to-eye, but on this I tend to agree with him.
