Re: AMSAT Journal info



Yes, the Journal is in electronic form when sent to the printer. In high
resolution PDF format for printing it is usually over 30 mb in size. That's
more than I can e-mail. If this turns into a viable project someone will need
to set up an FTP site to receive the files. I have the issues I have done from
late 2004 through present. I don't have earlier ones. The original files are
in either PageMaker or InDesign. The layout files in PageMaker are huge -
sometimes well over 300 mb! (Yes, 300!) InDesign files are a little smaller
but not too much. That's why I originally said it would take quite a while to
upload in layout format.

Regards and 73,

  Just a thought... isn't the journal in electronic format to begin with ?

  If the original source is available couldn't we just take the source and
  output it in PDF ?

  Thats got to be easier than scanning, OCR etc..

  cheers
