Because of life members like you, I can assure you I am not now and will 
not be in the future, a leader of AMSAT. I out of the game. I have not 
taken a call from an AMSAT leader in nearly two years.  The only 
notifications I get are on the advisors list. So as a leader, I am next 
to useless since I have no role and am not actively seeking one.  I want 
to do engineering should the need arise (but I am not holding my breath 
to tell you the truth).  I have personally had all of the crap here I 
can tolerate as a volunteer leader. As for you,  I would have long ago 
taken the pitiful excuse of a life membership donation you gave to AMSAT 
and returned it to you, with interest, and returned it to you.

Please list for us the positive contributions you have made to the 
organization since you gave it your dues ages ago.

P.S. And by the way.  I have done a few other minor things along the way 
in addition to giving these organizations less money than I spend on 
coffee in a year.
