I don't know who you've talked to, but that doesn't sound like a typical 
response. We did have problems, both technical and organizational, with 
the volunteer form. Those have been fixed.

I'll say this: Don't expect someone to hand you the keys to the kingdom 
and let you go unsupervised at the first sign of wanting to help. Lots 
of folks volunteer, but then drop off when they don't get asked to do 
something really plum right out of the gate. The last guy who got on -bb 
and complained that no one would let him volunteer disappeared as soon 
as he was given something to do, never to be heard from again.

Regardless, assuming you are a member of AMSAT-NA in good standing, I 
would love some assistance with the satellite status pages. There are 
many descriptions that need to be written or updated, statuses to be 
verified, and typos and bugs to be found. Email me off list and tell me 
where you'd like to start, and I'll put you to use today.

Thanks, Drew KO4MA
