It's a terrible shame that Amsat has choosen not to continue Mode S on 
I for one will no longer send my hard earned cash as a donation to Eagle 
or Amsat NA,but to Amsat DL as I'm sure many others will do.
The expression "Don't bite the hand that feeds you " comes to mind.
I have a full Mode L / S setup here sitting waiting unused since the day 
AO 40 died, what use are LEO's in Western Australia.
Sorry Amsat NA but I wont be renewing my membership next time without 
mode S.
