The problem is not with hams that are reading AMSAT-BB. The problem is 
that you have hams that know the satellite is up there and do not get 
AMSAT-BB. You can write all the suggestions that you want to the BB and 
we can all agree 100% and agree to comply 100%. But those that do not 
get the BB will never know of the problems and concerns that we have and 
therefore never have an inkling as to what to do to make it better.

Happy New Year
