Well first of all I am not currently on the Board, so it won't be a
re-election. I do participate in BOD meetings as VP Operations, although I
have no vote. If elected, I foresee my primary role as representing the
wants and needs of the membership. I am an active operator, and interact
with a great number of the membership on the air, via email, and in person
at the many hamfests and club meetings I attend each year. I try to bring a
fresh point of view and approach to what AMSAT does, and increasing our
openness and disposing of much of the dogma that has developed is a high
priority to me. I'm not afraid of saying we were wrong, and here is how we
are going to fix it.
Within the next two years I expect AMSAT to have at least one HEO in orbit,
and another being readied for launch. I'd like to see more outreach to those
building and launching LEO missions, although there is much happening here
already. ARISS needs our continued support, although we could benefit from
increased 'product placement' of the AMSAT name within ARISS. I think
Suitsat-2 will do this in a spectacular fashion.
If elected to the BOD, the membership can be sure they will always have an
open line of communication to me, and I am listening to their concerns.
73, Drew KO4MA
