Don't assume that AMSAT didn't send it to you 'till you've verified it with
them and they think they had a problem.
I've had delivery issues on things too, and it is the fault of the Post
Office. Your local PO can range from fantastic to wretched, and here in
Ann Arbor MI, it seems like we're more towards the wrong end of the
scale. One issue of QST had a completely mangled front cover, so bad
that I called the PO here and complained. The response was... "Oh.".
Lansing MI on the other hand, has such an efficient system that a
letter mail to my home town of Ann Arbor *gets there faster* than the
same thing mailed *in* Ann Arbor in most cases.
So when the ham mag you've been waiting for looks like a war refugee,
or has been AWOL for 1 week+, think about the system that carries it
to you. Note: This is not a rant against the USPO--I support it, but I think
it needs help, and I don't think that money is the answer.
