Certificates will be posted by end of May 2009
As we are celebrating the Hamsat 4 th anniversary on 5 May 09 and also
conducting an Amsat India Workshop on 10 May 09 to comemorate the same.
We thank you all for the wonderful operating reports about the Hamsat.
Instead of the first 50 free postage we may extend the the last date upto
May 10, keeping in view the Hamsat 4 th anniversay.
