Here is a long overdue and richly deserved THANK YOU for all
the wonderful work you all do on the AMSAT Journal. I also
read every issue cover-to-cover, including all the ads too.

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

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
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.
