While I can't vouch for checking in on Twitter or other social medias. I
can say I do respect the want to incorporate alternative and more publicly
visible methods into the operations of ham radio and AMSAT. One of the
stongest pulls for me into ham radio is the social aspect. Club meetings
are some of the best aspects of the hobby when you have a great club with
really personable members. A saying from Massachusetts (when I was out

So, Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Google Plus, etc... I'd love to see more
AMSAT involvement. It can only bring good to incorporate these into
