Website Technical Review Team

I am pleased to announce that our Website Technical Review Team,  
under the leadership of Gould Smith, WA4SXM has been formed.  Gould  
serves as Director-Field Operations and is the author of a number of  
AMSAT books.  He is well qualified to handle this important task with  
the assistance of a very capable team that he has formed.  The team  
that Gould has developed consists of AA2TX, KO4MA, KQ6EA, N8FGV, and  

The team has begun a systematic look at the content of the AMSAT  
website for technical issues, and is assigning a priority to  
identified items. The first areas the team is addressing are the  
Glossary and the Mode J operation article.  When appropriate, they  
will seek input from other individuals who may be knowledgeable in  
particular areas.  Two members of the team will OK articles for  
technical content with final approval from Gould before he forwards  
them for inclusion on the website.

"Our team is excited about updating the technical content of our  
website" says Gould Smith, WA4SXM.  "However, this will take some  
time and will require thoughtful evaluation.  In looking at the  
Glossary for example, we have found through our initial research that  
even the experts sometimes disagree on proper definition of technical  
terms.  We want the AMSAT website to be a trusted and reliable source."

Emily Clarke, W0EEC serves as Director-Website and will be working  
closely with Gould to implement changes as they are developed.

Should website visitors wish to suggest areas of current website  
technical content for the team's consideration or are interested in  
submitting suggested technical changes or updates, they can do so by  
contacting Gould Smith, WA4SXM  using his AMSAT e-mail alias.  Please  
put 'Website Technical Review' in the subject line.  Gould and  
several members of the team will be attending the AMSAT Symposium in  
Lafayette, LA (7-9 OCT 05) and are interested in hearing comments  
from attendees concerning their thoughts on the updating of technical  
content of our website.
