Re: Orbital Classroom -Where is it?????????




Hi Robin,

I couldn't agree more.  The "paucity" of information coming out of 
the present AMSAT-NA "administration" is something I just quit 
complaining about.  NothIng ever changes.

The technical experts "Bob McGwier" and all, present some wonderful 
information.

All the other "leaders" do nothing but ask for money, as though that 
was our only goal!!

Of course it takes dollars, we should to be reminded to donate, but 
we SHOULD ALSO BE KEPT INFORMED OF WHERE THOSE DOLLARS ARE GOING!!
