I believe the problem dates back to some sort of "conflict" between Miles
Mann and the AMSAT/SAREX/MIREX heavyweights. Meanwhile Miles has got the.
SSTV experiment up and running, (and P3D is still on the ground!) proof
enough to me at least that the new organisation (MAREX) is as capable, or
more so than the other pretenders.

Further more, the SSTV experiment has generated a huge response in both
amateur and educational circles. At the resumption of our school year I'm
going to do 2 demos to let primary and secondary students see live pictures
from space (if the whole job hasn't fallen apart by then). A couple of
"Distance Education" (scool of the air) kids happened to see it in my shack
visiting over Xmas.

Get a life you guys!
