I was going to just quietly do this and I already let Kevin know 
off-list that I joined via the website a few minutes ago, but since Jeff 
now has another offer out there, I'll go ahead and post.

This is one fence-sitter who really doesn't do anything on the birds 
that went ahead and joined AMSAT.  Somewhat because I felt that Kevin's 
offer was fantastic, and somewhat because I felt guilty for picking on 
him!  (Heh heh!)

Seriously, though...

AMSAT provides more than just satellites to the Amateur community, 
that's plain from the great people on -BB here.  Technical resources 
galore, a gathering place for some of the sharpest and best minds in 
Amateur radio design, leadership, and an organization devoted to 
supporting some of the most highly technical aspects, of our hobby -- 
and out more in the public eye than just about any other organization in 
Ham Radio.

Jeff, I don't need the book, I think I already have a copy of it around 
here somewhere.  Someone else mentioned that you could still send in the 
money to AMSAT as a direct donation for Eagle, but I'll leave that 
totally up to you.  Thank you for your kind offer.

Kevin and Jeff are generous folks.  Nicely done guys.  All very much in 
the spirit of Ham Radio I remember from my Elmer, who's been SK for many
