No Emily it takes courage to makes us remember that once upon a time we use to 
makes QSO's all over the world on a famous satellite eg: AO-40 (more than 800 
entry in my log). At his period to be honest i was not interested at all to use 
any LEO at the exception of ISS.

What other choices we have? play bingo? no we use what it is available! There 
is one who puts "pulling for P3E" in his signature. I think he wants to have a 
HEO. Lets say there is two kind of satellite fans one group are the users and 
the other one the builders is it possible the builders in 2006 accept they 
cannot exist without the other one? and vice versa?

Happy new year Emily continue to voice your opinion and ideas in the BOD in 

"It is not the class of license the amateur holds, but the class of the amateur 
that holds the license."
