In an attempt to behave differently than I normally do...I'll try to 
keep this one short.

Quick warning....I'm speaking personally here, not on behalf of VT or 
anything, though I know there are many that share my sentiments here.

This entire experience would not have been possible without AMSAT and 
the Amateur Radio community.  And I don't just mean the obviously 
awesome folks that are on the Engineering team and the Operations team 
that have helped us so much along the way.  I also mean everyone out 
there collecting telemetry and forwarding to the server.  We wouldn't 
have made it without the entire community backing us up, and we 
recognize that!

So for all of AMSAT and everyone else, HUGE thank you from VT.  I hope 
the partnership continues for as long as possible with as many missions 
as possible.

Thanks again!
