Well, I have no argument with an OSCAR number.  Suitsat DOES have Amateur
Radio on board.  It has stirred up a LOT of good publicity, and unexpectedly
provided a lot of good challenges in receiving it.

So what if I can't use it as a transponder?  It's certainly earned its OSCAR
number in my book. :)
