Ride to space



Thanks to the efforts of Lee McLamb, EVP AMSAT, we discovered a new 
opportunity to get our communications packages and antennas on board 
Intelsat launches.  Rick Hambly and the AMSAT executive team have been 
negotiating nearly nonstop with Intelsat.  They have released us to go 
put the entire project together,  design/funding/etc.  and to publicize 
the opportunity.  The engineering team has been restructured to take 
maximum advantage of this opportunity and to see that it serves radio 
amateurs world wide.

More will follow from Rick and others and we return to our transparent 
mode now that we have been allowed, for the first time, to speak openly 
about the opportunity and have them confirm to those making inquiries 
that we are working with them to build a mission.
