Re: Slate of Officers Issue BOD



Hi All,
We could save poastage for AMSAT by doing the election via E- mail to 
members that have E-Mail.
As the election is for members only, I don't feel that the BB is the proper 
format for this activityanymore than some expect that the Directors of AMSAT 
NA read and respond to this forum.
The BB is like a party line and allows all to take sides before receiving 
the facts in an issue.
The BB is at it's best answering technical questions, and providing help to 
the newcommers in satellite operations.
