Sorry Domenico,

At this point having a "positive meeting" does nothing for P3-E. P5 is
only a valid option in the future if it is designed for a moon orbit.
The Mars option is an amateur radio user nightmare and ill conceived.
Any CubeSat will do more for us than a P5 around Mars because of the
hardware requirements for the majority of amateur radio satellite
operators. Thanks, but I believe it when I see it and I don't see it
and that's why I stopped to support it.

Stefan, VE4NSA
