Unfortunate, but true, Dom...AMSAT-NA made such a big promotion of 
AO-51, supposedly promote interest in hamsats and increase 
membership, and I think it did just the opposite...

I've asked many times how many members we acquired, never got an 
answer so assume it was zero, nada, nil.....

And part of the loss was also many former ssb/cw users that just gave 
up because of lack of bandspread...

I tried to hold a conversation when 51 was first launched, and was 
berated severely for making a couple of short sentences!!

What good is it if no intelligence is transferred??

One could swap grid squares on a cell phone, if that is the only interest!!

GO P3E!!!!!!!!!!!!!
