Hi Howard,

I don't even try to copy my contacts right now. I started working the Sats
last year. Worked them about a month, suffered a hard drive crash loosing my
log. Just got things back. I use a recorder to record my contacts then play
that back and make my notes. I had a digital recorder but after a year of
not using it I can't find it. I'm using an old cassette tape recorder until
I can buy another one.

As for the members section. I think you are referring to the members section
on the amsat.org web site? I could be wrong, usually am my wife tells me,
but I think it's not fully online yet.

73, Kent
