Perhaps you missed the introduction that this is the 50th anniversary of the
first amateur satellite launch newsletter?

Dateline: Project OSCAR Newsletter November 15, 1961 at 1345 PST

Project OSCAR is providing reproductions of the satellite news from 50 years

Who writes this stuff? There's 700,000 licensed Amateur Radio Operators in
the United States alone!

*"There are an estimated 300,000 licensed radio amateurs in the world, and
American Radio Relay League hopes a large number of these hobbyists will
participate in the forthcoming experiments."*
