I will admit, I was speaking about AMSAT-NA specifically, but failed to 
say so.  I have also hesitated to join AMSAT-DL simply because I can't 
understand the language.  I've previously been a member of AMSAT-NA and 

I am not averse to rejoining AMSAT-NA (because NA is closer to me than 
UK) but frankly, I am not convinced that the policies being followed 
will result in more/better/any satellites that I can actually use.  As 
has been pointed out here very recently, the new AMSAT-NA mission 
statement does not even mention the word "communications".
