Hello Rocky,

Apology accepted.

Well, you are indeed fully entitled to your opinion, but I would submit 
that until you walk in the shoes of the ARRISat team members who are 
busting their pick to try and do the right thing for the members, maybe, 
just maybe, you should temper your judgment about their abilities and 
short comings given that without their very best intentioned efforts 
you'd have nothing to complain about and Amateurs wouldn't have a new 
satellite to look forward to. If our best efforts are not considered to 
be good enough by a few, we are encouraged by the many out there, who 
still cheer us on. And since those cheering far out number our 
detractors, then Robert, the ARRISat team is moving full speed ahead 
without you on our side.

Yes, you have assumed correctly, that it is our plan to proceed to the 
deployment date with confidence.

Regards...Bill - N6GHz
