My reasoning.  If Amsat could write any size check any time we wanted, we 
would have a lot of Oscars up there.  But the limiting factor on Oscars is 
funds.  I like the idea of having two new P3's as well, and if donations 
start rolling in then we really don't need to discuss this idea.  I think 
if Amsat-DL saw an increase in funds roll in P3E could get launched sooner. 
No matter how things go, I'll still continue to donate to both projects.
