Recovery operations are underway again for AO-27. We will try to keep the
website up to date with any infomation.

We could definitely use another FM bird, so let's hope they are able to get
it going again. Maybe I'm a good luck charm - I just sent a QSL card to
N5TRR for my last QSO on AO-27, just minutes before it failed last year,
stating "Last operational orbit of AO-27" in the comment field. I'd be
happy to be wrong about that!
I made a presentation on FUNcube at the RSGB Convention a couple of weeks
ago and several people have asked for a set.
Instead of emailing them out, we have put the on the FUNcube web site in
working documents page:

Anything up with the remailer? Just got a bounce on 2 emails I sent to
550 #5.7.1 Your access to submit messages to this e-mail system has been rejected.
Thanks & 73,
This email is free from viruses and malware because avast! Antivirus protection is active.
A significant fraction of the spam I get on my primary email account
comes by way of the amsat.org email reflector; by my count, 18 of the 76
spam emails I've received in the last day.
But I don't want to just shut it off; sometimes people I do want to hear
from make contact that way. And I've used it to contact others whose
email addresses I don't know, but who I know to be AMSAT members.
I wonder if it would be possible to set up some sort of auto-responder
on amsat.org so that instead of just forwarding email, returns a message
to the sender with a non-machine-readable image of the user's actual
email address, possibly accompanied with a sound file with the same
information for anyone with impaired vision. Spammers couldn't handle
it, especially since most don't even use valid return addresses. But any
real human could resend his email directly to its destination.
What do people think of this idea? How much of a problem is spam for
everyone else here?
