He! He!  Well, I expect some attempt at humor by Art, but I would say 
he might not be too far off with this.  Consider that there will be a 
need to generate jobs in the upcoming economic recovery.  Perhaps our 
HEO's funded primarily as EmComm satellites with ham radio on board, 
could hire out of work aerospace engineers, thus accomplishing some 
of our national goals along with some of our AMSAT goals.  Again, 
having the "pitch-man/woman" to promote this with congress and the 
gov't will be a key to success.  Perhaps there are some out of work 
lobbyist out there?

I know a gal named "Sarah" that might put in a good word if there is 
any media attention to be had ;-)

I now return the -bb to normal programing, already in progress!
