Hi Bruce

Your power point presentation and this email are being forwarded to the head 
of the education department at the University of Louisiana. The have agreed 
to partner with the CAPE Team on there next sat. CAPE II will fly an 
educational payload. They are in the processing of figuring what they will 
fly. A parrot repeater and a easy way to decode temp, voltage and currents 
are in the works. Included in the mission is the kitting of a yagi and a up 
converter that will use a FRS radio to listen to the sat. The team thinks 
they might get the cost to < $50.  The team is looking for input on the pay
