RE: AMSAT Journal, Membership survey, ARISS/Human Spaceflight- Meisse Reply #2-

A very difficult challenge to please everyone. Keep up your interest and
help all of us try and get it right!!!! I, as you, have been at this since
Oscar 6... It has been a fun ride and now we have some new and even more
challenging decisions to make... We are fighting an aging membership,
increasing competition for interest and dollars, and a faster paced
communications environment where decisions are more open and opinions more
readily expressed....

We all look forward to your help.

Gunther, I'm not "trashing" AMSAT-NA in any, way, shape or form.  I've been 
a member and supporter since Oscar 7; 25 years come April 05.

I am just of the opinion that ISS and FM voice LEOS interests will not 
support a HEO, and that any money that is spent for either effort will not 
promote support for anything more sophisticated (read $ and effort)....

So I'm just going to change the rope on which I am pulling.....
