Hi Dee, NB2F

AO40 died 8 years ago and following DB2OS indication the possibility to
launch P3E fall into 2018 and since I am 80 years old I don't know if I will
see or not P3E in good brain shape or with many senior moments or if I
will be died at all at that time.

If I have to suggest someone to dedicate his time and invest money in a
satellite station I will suggest to him to go in HF and not satellite at

We have lost not only the best HEO satellite i.e. AO40 but we are loosing
the FM LEO satellite too but just now the LEO satellite VO-52 so that the
satellite activity was nice until it lasted because the future in my opinion
with only the old FMing OSCAR-7 is not bright at all...(sobsob)
