Again, I caution. Until we have a contract, this is an opportunity. The
most serious we have had since we launched AO-40 but a contract must be let
to Virginia Tech by the USG to update the electronics and adapt the frame
and components (remove the rocket and tanks), and get ready to use the VT
ground station for operations along with AMSAT. I believe we will know
before the 2017 fiscal year, but AMSAT's are ready to say yes as is VT.

I love both of these guys Peter and Andrew. Be grateful after I get the USG
to say yes.
