Don, (et al)
First, if some of our leadership doesn't hear about any dis-satisfactions amoung memers, they will not know that anything is in disarray.  I have been a long time member and love to hear all that transpires through this BB.  
I learn that the most unfascinating thing to the overwhelming majority is LEO satellites.  While they offer EZ sat capability, a one channel unit doesn't peak the skills of a conversation through staellites as on HF and VHF local repeaters.  HEO type birds offer a great deal more- scheduling nets, and more contacts depending on the position of the HEO.  
Our members deserve information in a timely manner and this BB offers that too.  I beleive in "delete" buttons and I use mine frequently with a grain of salt as needed.
The information gathered here is by far a more rewarding an experience than any other distraction.  Remember, our group is as active as its membership.
See all in NJ at the BARA hamfest 5/31/08 in Westwood, NJ (& others)
Dee, NB2F
NJ AMSAT co-ordinator and  promoter
