RE: Computer Woes...



Speaking as someone who is NOT a rocket scientist, but as a ham, a
software designer and developer, and a satellite enthusiast, could
someone explain what is wrong with the Mode J article?  The authors
clearly state that their conclusions are by no means scientific and make
no claims that they've made measurements.  They merely state that this
seems to work for them.

Can't some articles be written for laymen?

BTW, what is MOST embarrassing is mis-spelled words and poor grammar,
especially in this day of spell-checking!

Steve,
Kevin, myself, and MANY others have tried to get these corrections done 
through the proper channels, up to and including the President of AMSAT 
himself. No results. Have you read the information in question? While
the 
solution works and has been in use for years, the errors in the theory
are 
appalling, and indicates that there is no working system of peer review
or 
content control on the website. The glossary is even worse.

The lack of accuracy and technical review in some of the 
articles is appalling and embarassing. Go read it for yourself. 
http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/echo/ModeJ.php and 
http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/information/glossary.php

Emily and the "web team" now have a volunteer with fine credentials to 
correct the glossary. Let's see if the problem gets fixed this time.

73, Drew KO4MA
