John.  I was told by someone else that the problem was current  use...but 
if ITAR is the problem, then it can be fixed.  ITAR is a pain  but it can be 
"dealt with" particularly in this case...where there is no dual  use 

As for AMSAT's ARISSsat transponder.  Well we will  see if it works.  They 
are not exactly burning up the track record with  success.  We have had this 
argument and I am willing to sit back and see  if it goes, but it is far to 
much project for the program.  Most of the  folks I know at JSC give it 
less then 20 percent chance of working...In fact  it was a source of mirth at a 
recent BDAY party.
