Bob is making arrangements to make PDF copies of my collection of early AMSAT newsletters which are complete from Volume I number 2 all the way through Volume XI number 2.

Going through them I discovered a couple of "errors".  For example, there are 2 newsletters marked as Volume VII number 3!  The correct one has a notice that a renewal envelope is enclosed.  The "bogus" one has a photo of President Gerald Ford on the cover.  This one is actually Volume VIII number 3!

Also, the last newsletter in the "small" size that I have has Volume XII number 2.  However, the previous (correct volume) newsletter is Volume XI number 1.  The only thing that I can imagine is that someone "discovered" the fact that the 2nd Volume VIII number 3 was missing an "I".  Therefore, to get things back in balance the missing "I" was included on what should have been Volume XI number 2!  ;>)
