I realized my monthly donation to AMSAT  had stopped a short time ago.  Wanting to re initiate it I am debating going with Fox vs P3E from our DL friends.  The DL version is obviously the coolest of the two, though Fox would probably more immediately economically feasible.  Retired on a fixed income I spread my funds carefully.    Being a HEO fanatic I question the short term feasibility of P3E.  I feel a HEO would be a huge boost in a expanding satellite community.  I give a few talks, do a hamfest and try to carry the "message" .  Usually ending with, "we simply we need more money".  Maybe buy more lottery tickets or pool our Visa cards.  I know we have some very smart and "connected" people within AMSAT to the commercial industry.  The big question, "where do we get the biggest bang for our buck".  An idol thought, what would NASA say/do if say North Korea China, or Iran said we can launch a bird for you.  Yep throw politics into it.  It's late, I'm rambling yet these thoughts seem to forever occupy me. 

fairwell to AO-51
