Mr. Bradford,

You are partially correct in your statement about the 2011 AMSAT
Symposium that was hosted in San Jose. You were involved in obtaining
prizes that were awarded during that Symposium, but you did not
attend that Symposium. I was there, enjoying what was for me the
second AMSAT Symposium held on the west coast, after attending
the 2006 Symposium that was hosted in Foster City CA, south of
SFO airport.

During the 2011 Symposium, Mr. Bradford contacted me with two

1. Did the prizes make it to the Symposium?

2. Was he recognized for his work in obtaining prizes?

I answered "yes" to both questions. There would have been no need
to contact me and ask these questions, had he attended the Symposium.

I quickly went through the photos I took during the 2011 Symposium,
where I had been taking photos of different people. Nothing
with Mr. Bradford. I also looked in the AMSAT-BB archives and the
archives of his own Yahoo! mailing list. No mention of being at
the Symposium while it was taking place, and nothing after the
Symposium referring to being there.

To use a quote of his from a recent post in another forum...

"Just for accuracy's sake."
