When Juan started talking to Jim Sanford and I about doing receiver 
construction and testing work,  how it would be accomplished, and his 
team;  I was hopeful.  The performance of Juan and his team have greatly 
exceeded my expectations for "novices" to the AMSAT engineering world. 
I am very grateful they are contributing to bring hardware to reality 
for us.
