I think 2016 will be a great year for AMSAT organizations around the world and for AMSAT-NA, it will be a major turn around year with multiple spacecraft to be launched and multiple I preparation or under consideration.
I'm very happy to be active again with my AMSAT friends and around the world. The slow evaporation of the damage done by ITAR is readily apparent I our various circles doing technical work.
It is exciting.
