Probably my fault, I'm sure I could have spent some time working
a PR package up the chain of command but with enough aligators
aready in my swamp, it was low on my priority list.   Probably
because there didn't seem to be that much much interest shown
in PCSAT2 by the amateur community other than the few very
dedicated stations involved in the SATgates and a few regulars.

But thanks for the slap on the wrist.  Since we have 3 more
satellties going up on the next shuttle in December (ANDE, RAFT
and MARScom) , I guesss I need to start working on  a PR
package...  Hummh....
