Hi again,

Now I know, why someone thought that "AMSAT" might be a very interesting
domain to grab and make money with....  ;-)





At least the last one advertises with AMSAT as an registered
trademark?   Hmm, doesn't it belong to AMSAT-NA??
And can someone use AMSAT-Hc as an registered trademark even if AMSAT is
already registered?

just curious...
