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.

Hi Bob, W7LRD

In my opinion it's much better donate to AMSAT-DL for P3E
