John and all,

No disrespect intended to anyone - but I found myself exactly in the place you described in June of last year. The AMSAT Web site helped me way more than it hindered me. I dare say anyone who knows how to use Google or any search engine will find many sources of (likely) way more information than he or she will ever need to start working the satellites. 

None of this is to suggest that so many bad/out-of-date links is a good thing. I second Drew's response - who would like to step up and volunteer to help improve the organization and its Web site? 

73 to all,

Tim - N3TL

When you first start thinking about playing with the satallites there isn't that much information on the web. Most links are broken or refer to satellites that are long silent. Step back and look at the hobby from someone looking to get into it. You are not going to get home brewers if all the plans use parts no longer made and you are not going to get new satellite people if all of the info is for dead birds.
