Hi Jason

You and many other are saying this in a same voice but AMSAT-NA and their sats builders does not 
hear/listen their own membership. They ask for money.money and money period. And they are doing 
what it is the best for the rest of the uneducated, unscientific crowd.

For me any opinions count and there is no question about a troll when peoples just express freely 

I share, we share your thoughts while some want to attract new members with a disguise  toll 
satellite fee for AO-51.

Just a note for the sake of clarity P3E is the next logical satellite to be launched and its where 
all your support should go. There is no political intent here just a plain logic (who is not 
present enough actually). P3E will have an S mode downlink and you will be able to use your former 
AO-40 setup.

The medium is the message...The content is the audience...;)
