Dont know to whom to ask my question Gunther? Martha? Lee? ANS?
but it is a good habit to follow on ANS news.  Instead of getting 
always same "old" usual sat news it is good to see another kind of 
news.

I can congratulates for that but not to a point to say it is the 
"most trusted sources of news" but surely a small step for AMSAT a 
giant one for membership kind.

Leaving this introduction i read on the 2003 AMSAT annual report at 
the financial section some intriguing figures... As of December 
(capital here i think) 31 2002 a 73009.30$ and on the "kind of 
audited' 2002 financial statements a 153573$ amount for  which i 
cannot understand why he's not the same.

Its is probably an enron i should say an error... but for the  first 
one who can explain me this 80564$ difference i will put 10$ in my 
AMER bin for a future donation. (There is still an unused 50$ amount 
in it)

Thank's
