I first want to wish you and your growing family the very best for the 

AO-51, has been one of my best satellite recruiting tools and I will 
certainly miss her, however she gave us many wonderful years of faithful 
service, good bye dear friend.

Drew, it is also important to note that you and the control team, managed 
AO-51 in a manner that I believe extended her life, thank you.

As you noted we all must continue to support  AMSAT's Fox-1 project, and 
other AMSAT projects  I believe thru Amateur Satellites we have found a 
potential path to excite the children today and continue the STEM 

73's Pete
