Dear Esther, KI4LJD,

Well, it was rough making contact but everything
worked out in the long run.  We had a full program
going into the meeting-seminar but, hopefully as
you saw, we value your efforts, we want you to
succeed, we are willing to help, and we hope to
see more youth get involved.  So therefore we
"made" room for your very fine presentation.

No problem!

Again, please join at lease one of the AMSAT mail
lists (see http://amsat.org/mailman/listinfo/) or
have someone on your team at school do that to
use us as part of your new, growing "network."

It was a delight to have you and Nastia visit.

Most of those in attendance, and more, are on
the amsat-dc at amsat.org mail list.  Keep in


Pat Kilroy, N8PK
