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".
