Re: [eu-amsat] More AO-7 log.

Hi Thomas,
                 Sound advice indeed!, I just might take you up on it but I suppose then I'd be accused of being a 'stick-in-the-mud' when really, I'm only trying to do what's best for everybody's benefit.

It's a lose - lose situation hi ... but I won't let it get to me.

Thanks for the encouragement Thomas.

I've batted your comment Stateside, you never know, after the 5th attempt, the message just might sink in ... ha-ha-ha ... but I'm *NOT* going to hold my breath.
