We chose to use https on the funcube warehouse to protect login registration
info. It turns out that the certificate provider we use does not fully
honour the protocol and does not send the organisation 'O' code.
We are aware of the problem and are going to revert back to http and remove
login registration requirement. 
This will also allow the map to work on all browsers.
We will still require that users of the dashboard enter their site info.
Email validation will still take place.

IT topic 3: AMSAT Email
For the past 3..4 weeks my ISP blocks amsat, so pa3guo @ amsat.org does not
reach me.
Best way to contact me is via pa3guo @ upcmail.nl.
.. Initially I thought it was my ISP, then I suspected AMSAT, and now I
don't know anymore, but I hear more people in the Netherlands have this
issue, also people with a different ISP, while other people with the same
ISP can (!) use amsat.org without problems. It seems to be a sticky problem.
