Hello David, and everyone,

> AMSAT-UK has announced a new amateur satellite project - FUNcube 
> ... received major initial funding from the Radio Communications
> Foundation (RCF)

First, congratulations to AMSAT-UK on your exciting new project!

This is an excellent example of the premise that AMSAT needs to create a
mission that excites possible funding sources ... with a positive side
effect that Amateur Radio gets to use a new linear transponder in orbit.

Well done!
