AMSAT Journal Mailing Glitch

The June/July issue of the Journal is now arriving.  Members with sharp eyes have noticed that while the address is correct, the name, callsign, and membership status are incorrect.  This was caused by a problem with the printer software.  They have been very apologetic, and have assured us the problem has been solved. There is no need to contact the AMSAT office since they are aware of the issue, and the membership data is correct in their records.
