To all the AMSAT volunteers in the Webpage, Newsletter and Dayton Video
teams, please accept my profound thanks for your efforts. I am enjoying
the newsletters and the webpage is looking better and better. I think
the new "Blog" format is very informative and useful as are the restored
links to the old pages. Keep up the good work.
Recently I complained about the perceived lack of information and action
on the issues with ARISS and NASA. Now after watching the videos from
the Dayton Hamvention presentations, I understand the challenges of
dealing with bureaucracies much better. Many thanks to the ARISS team
for explaining the issues so clearly in the video. I also am hopeful
that the ITAR issue will be resolved soon and we can get back to perhaps
exchanging technology and knowledge for rides.
A couple of long lasting birds would go a long way toward attracting new
ground stations and users. Perhaps a cloud based application where
captured telemetry from the "CubeSats" could be forwarded to be stored
for later download and information on the necessary hardware to build
such stations would be a low maintenance yet broad based program. This
way hams and non-hams could participate and contribute, with ease.
Thanks again for a job well done (and doing).
