[amsat-bb] One camp versus another

Hey all.

Wow...there is quite a bit of division, for sure.  However, it shouldn't be
that way.  Be it FM Easy Sats, or the CW/SSB Linear sats, or the digital
Packet sats, we are still united in the love for satellite operation.
Period.  Some like the FM birds.  Some don't.  Each is entitled to their
opinions.  I for one, see FM satellites as a stepping stone to working the
Linears..almost how the Novice Ham license was intended.

As far as AMSAT leadership goes...if the members as a whole don't approve of
what's going on, or the direction of the organization, then it is up to said
members to remove what they don't like.  That's how a healthy democracy

Anyway...the debate in an open forum is also a good thing, as each opinion
is voiced, problems are posed, and solutions are offered.
