It really does not instill much confidence in partnering with 
RSC-Energia for any future satellites.  I will withhold judgement of 
individuals involved till we learn more.  I certainly am not in favor 
of spending Amsat funds on such a venture, again.

But then I no longer have a voice in the matter as I have let my 
membership in Amsat lapse.  That was totally a financial decision - 
as a senior retired on social security, I have to chose what I spend 
money for.  I could continue a couple memberships that provide a 
senior/retired rate.

That also means I am retired as a field op.
