Sorry if I am repeating myself, but WE are responsible for educating  
the ARRL and the media when it comes to amateur satellites.

We should NOT expect ANY non-AMSAT entity to know anything about this  
aspect of the hobby.

It is up to us who are involved in our "specialties" to convey -  
intelligently and using proper, approved methods - that information to  
appropriate sources.

Most of our news comes from "media alerts" nowadays. Knowing HOW to  
contact and WHOM to contact with media alerts is OUR responsibility.
