Hi Bob, WB4APR

Radio Hams are not complaying about a few 1 KHz wide telemetry
beacons from the University projects.
Radio Hams or all the people as you says are very disturbed because
the Universities get governement funds to build and launch their 
satellites and AMSAT is not !
Are AMSAT with AMSAT members and experimenter's Radio Hams 
becoming an endangered species ? This is the point !
