[amsat-bb] HRD Satellite Tracking

Greetings all!

Recently, I announced that I was bringing on a total of five developers to
help us with our development backlog.  In fact, I've got six developers
on-boarded now.

I'm going to assign one of these developers to the Satellite application.

After the last go 'round on this reflector, I had some volunteers.  I need
a couple volunteers - who understand how to demonstrate and test the
Doppler problem - that I can introduce to the developer.  The developer
should work directly with these people.

A few things to keep in mind:

   - The focus will be entirely on correction of previously recorded
   defects (not enhancement requests at this point).  If new defects are
   identified during the process, the developer will discuss them with me (so
   I can determine if it's really a defect or an enhancement; we'll get to the
   FOUR existing enhancement requests after we get the defects corrected).
   - There are exactly 19 defects associated with the Satellite application.
   - The developer assigned probably won't be a ham.  That's fine.  They
   don't really need to be a ham to resolve these defects.  (Point I'm making
   here is this.  These guys are "hired guns" that I'm bringing in as part of
   this "troop surge" to get rid of the backlog.  They're good developers,
   rather than experienced hams.  So take it easy on them.)

Interested volunteers, please contact me directly (outside the reflector)
