Re: Weather satellite reception or SO-50 in India



I applied for a VU license when I was going to be in India for 2 weeks in 
January of 1998...  my application ended up lost either in India's postal 
system, or their Ministry of Communications.  Anyway, never did receive the 
ticket, but, fortunately, did not have to pay up front with the application. 
(unlike the Dominican Republic, where I spent about $40 US to apply & send 
everything FedEx, 3 months before going there,  and finally heard from them 
3 months AFTER I returned home..............)
