That's funny, I was thinking that too, we just associate Arrow with 
portable Satellite operations.  I was just so impressed that Ray would just 
give me an antenna, and I didn't even own one, that was special.

As a result of the publicity of giving away an ELK antenna in my Satellite 
forum, the room was packed and people outside looking thru the glass, but 
they had a raffle ticket!  Drew, at that point I knew that we don't get many 
opportunities to talk about the work AMSAT does and the need for membership 
and donations with bigger groups, I spent five valuable "satellite" minutes 
connecting my talk to AMSAT and if I added value then you need to transfer 
that feeling to your AMSAT involvement.  I hope my message got thru to just 
a few.
