The AMSAT web site is kept up to date with current information on a
regular basis, but those old pages do contain important archival
information and it wouldn't be right to just delete it. There is a
massive amount of information useful for those doing historical
research in those files. I have used that document and many others on
>From the AMSAT home page, the 'Satellite Info' tab contains links to
plenty of current and accurate information. This page contains all you
need to know: http://www.amsat.org/?page_id=177
We are always looking for people to help with the web site. If you
have some specific suggestions in mind, please email me.
