regarding this latest AO-40 (sobsob) thread...If you do any satellite operation you should join AMSAT....if you join AMSAT you should contribute whatever additional you can afford, there are monthly plans available http://store.amsat.org/catalog/index.php?cPath=35&osCsid=f01nlhgn764rav8s261ipo2fn6 . If it's all about the bottom line (money), make it available. If you don't like AMSAT or the direction it is taking, start your own or join the BOD and fix it. It is essential I/we trust those in charge. I keep my AO40 QSL cards handy and show them to visitors, and I tell them yes it'll happen again.

I'm almost fifty one years old and I'm now convinced that we will not
see another HEO in orbit in my lifetime...if ever. The economic
environment to do it just doesn't exist anymore. AMSAT has as much as
told everyone that by abandoning their efforts and concentrating on LEO
cubesats. No one is going to come out and say that we absolutely will
never have one, they like to keep that glimmer of hope alive but the
writing is on the wall. No one wants to be wrong more than I do but
I'd bet you P3-E never flies.
