Oh, by-the-way, I have received lots of private-off-BB email agreement. Normally I reply to each such private email, but since there have been so many, I thought I would save time and thank those individuals all at once if the opportunity came up. They rightly didn't want to add any more emails to this burdensome thread that comes up every few months and then wastes everone's precious time... So lets all hang in there, work the satellites, and work with groups that are building satellites, and contribute where we can... Or get out of the way. Bob.
"based on your logic no criticism whatsoever is warranted." Yes it is exactly what we all seen here from AMSAT-NA and by some of their blinded supporter"

Just look around some AMSAT-BB actual and past BOD members and you will have a fairly good idea of this "lots of private-off-BB email agreement." I.m also receiving a lot of commenting coming from the EU AMSAT reflector and even some on the air! It's not a question of who is supporting who but how to make a satellite association running who is actually not working as per nominal parameters.
AMSAT-NA is unable to have any kind of evolution as it's core members are always the same promoting always the same ideas to a point they are and will be more and more unable to attract new officers and volunteers.
They are not even taking any lessons learn from the past. There is nothing to be ashamed to be stupid but willingly accepting to remain stupid is.
