Notice that I did the intro "Welcome Newcomers" page for this issue. It was 
great fun to get articles from serious satellite chasers around the world, 
and have them published in 73. I did the HAMSATS column for 16 years as a 
form of AMSAT advertising. The credentials of the satellite-article authors 
in the Special issues were awesome. I am sure you will recognize the names 
and callsigns of most of the folks in the November 2001 issue. Wayne gave us 
(AMSAT) an open forum to tell the world outside what we were all about. 
There were multiple Special Satellite Issues. Can you find them all?

Very Cool! Now they are all out there for your reading pleasure, and 
education. Thanks to Wayne and the editorial staff, espeically Joyce 
Sawtelle, who worked with me to ensure that everything was as accurate as 
possible, and everyone got PAID... Thanks also to Vern Riportella WA2LQQ 
(SK) for talking me into writing the columns...
