Re: From where???




Hello Dave,
                 I was born within spitting distance of the JODRELL BANK ... (University of Manchester) ... Radio telescope, in the county of Cheshire, England 1n 1946.

Served in Her Majesty's Service ... (British Army Signals) ... UN service ... (around the world) ... NATO Norway from 1970 until retirement, been here ever since. 

Now old, bald and senile ... like AO-7, trying to keep my last surviving brain cell "illuminated".

I appreciate the feedback Dave.

"Observations From Norway" ... (paper format) ... used to be quite popular in Oscar News and The Amsat Journal ... until three heart attacks kinda' knocked the wind out of my sails ... 3 in quick succession tend to give you a message ...
crank it down a notch.

Of course, the "hard" living around the globe had nowt to do with it.

Just came out of hospital again, this time with some plastic tubing in my groin/leg ... I doubt if they did a microwave oven test on it so I expect it's not microwave or space-rated.

The clowns refused !!! to allow me to set up the satellite array in the intensive care unit so I did a runner at the first opportunity ... at a rapid rate of knots ... spoilsports !!!.

You said ...

<Keep all your AO-7 stuff coming .... maybe some of these >kids will get the message.

That is the humble intention Dave. Preferably dressed in a dose of light-hearted humour.

We need to recruit the youth and not have Amsat end up like the two "gentlemen" in the balcony on The Muppet show.

Anybody !!!!! can critcise. "Constructive" criticism is what's needed.
