Gawd, did someone sue AMSAT-NA to obtain a membership email mailing list or something?
All sorts of campaign statements from folks who don’t deserve votes in my IN BOX this evening …
No need to reply.

the computer interface.
As opposed to paying the $ for an authentic GS-232B, I see the following

That, or I spring for a Green Heron, right?
What do you think? What other options should I consider?

Just when I hoped things had settled down on the AMSAT-BB and
it was safe to begin reading about Amateur Satellites and Operations
again, things started to go back to "other stuff". So, it's going BACK
to SPAM again and I'll check back in a couple weeks. GEEESH!!

I wonder why some members have a major problem getting unsolicited emails possibly obtained from QRZ or other from a prospective candidate(s), but don't blow up when another group representing incumbents use QRZ or other to get addresses to send out unsolicited preprinted mail?
With a little ingenuity, including choice of licensing country, we can have legal digital gateway stations. Operating rules can be changed if necessary, although we have to stay within license regulations. I didn't say that such stations would be cheap, although such a network would cost a lot less than trying to build our own HEO. As a point of reference, AO-40 cost about $5 million in today's dollars, roughly half of which was raised by AMSAT-NA and ARRL. It was my bad luck to be acting president of AMSAT-NA during the failure and partial recovery of AO-40. I'll never forget the great work done to get it back in operation, and those who did it. I hope we'll never have to go through something like that again, but after all it IS rocket science.
