Re: Need some help with AO-27, AO-51 and SO-50 dimensions



Drew,

My apologies for a moment of dyslexia. It's AO-51 that's listed as 25x25x25 on the AMSAT site, here:

http://www.amsat.org/amsat-new/satellites/satInfo.php?satID=1&retURL=/satellites/status.php

It would be helpful, I think, to add units of measure to the AO-27 and AO-51 pages, and to add the dimensions to the SO-50 page. 

Thank you for getting back to me on this.

73,

Tim
