I'm very glad you like it! It's definitely a labor of love for Bill and me. Thanks very much for the kind words.

The contributors really make it possible. I really appreciate all the great writers we have that contribute to the Journal.

  Subject: [amsat-bb] AMSAT Journal

  I have been traveling for almost all of 2007 and just have not had  
  time to catch up on the backlog of magazines and many other  
  publications received.

  Last night I was able to kick back with a cup of coffee and the  
  latest AMSAT Journal (Jan/Feb 2007) and just couldn't put it down  
  until I had consumed every word. The topics covered seemed a good mix  
  of technical and anecdotal account; the writing and editing work is  

  As AMSAT-NA members, we are fortunate to have such talented people  
  creating a publication that links us all together with the  
  information required to take full advantage of those assets on orbit  
  or under construction.

  AMSAT-BB can be an interesting place if you are willing to sift  
  through the noise to find a little signal. On the other hand, the  
  Journal is a clear source of concise information and for anyone who  
  is either active or has an interest in satellite operation, it alone  
  is worth the price of membership. How many messages do we see here  
  every month asking the same questions over and over? Those questions  
  are answered, and in detail in the Journal.

  One example, "Why Can't I Hear AO-51?" by Mark Spencer, WA8SME is a  
  short but definitive treatise on the subject and it really gets to  
  the heart of that same old question asked here many times and in many  
  ways. You want opinions, toss your question out on the -BB and you'll  
  get plenty. You want answers. join AMSAT and get the Journal.

  "Bravo" and "Kudos" to Ed Long, Bill Hook and all those whose hard  
  work on the Journal is so obviously visible in the end product.

  Thanks, 73
