Since the Hawk Institute has reorganized itself as a for-profit organization,
any radio amateur who provides tracking services for HawkSat-1 should be sure
to invoice them for those services at the commercial rate. Since you are only
receiving the signals and not transmitting, you would not be in violation of
Part 97 to be paid for your work. (However if Hawksat is transmitting on
amateur frequencies, they might be.)

Unless that is another HISS besides the one at UMES, I don't plan to provide
any support until they give AMSAT-NA's stuff back, with interest.  ;)
