Here are our drawing winners so far. I'm picking up the drawings for Martha for a while so she can concentrate on some end of year activities (and some vacation). This way we can keep this fund drive rolling over the holidays.
The winners so far are: $1000-$1250 Richard Lewis $1250-$1500 Eric Schecter $1500-$1750 Stephen Silverman and Charles Suprin
I did get off a little bit counting things, so we did two drawings for the last interval. Since it was my mistake, Martha and Barry will have to dock my pay for the additional prize!
Thanks to all the donors, especially Clint Bradford for his matching donations. If you'd like to sponsor a matching donation program, please email me direct at [email protected] We still have a long way to go to close the ledger on ARISSat-1 and get FOX off to a good start financially, but this has been an excellent start. Remember,as a 501c3, donations to AMSAT may be tax-deductible, and the end of the year is rapidly approaching!
Happy Holidays and 73, Drew KO4MA AMSAT-NA VP Operations

Thanks for all the donations, and especially to those who have posted the widget to their own pages.
