Re: The Whole GEO Package - EMCOMM

Please don't misinterpret me...It has been mentioned many times that ARRL
does not necessarily have Satellite interests as one of their primary
objectives.

The status of contesting through satellites is one example.

I mentioned ARRL only in recognition of past efforts and accomplishments in
supporting EMCOMM...a decision would have to be made as to whether they have
expertise or influence remaining in that area, other than an existing large
organization of amateur radio operators. Do we as AMSAT need to generate
that pool of talent or do we choose to "borrow" from it to meet satellite
EMCOMM goals?
