I once suggest this before and got little traction.  We all have what I call "round to it" projects.  When in reality we'll never get round to it.  How much "stuff do we have just waiting?  I suggest we simple float this stuff on ebay, craigslist, this bb or whatever.  Then donate the funds to AMSAT.  I mean even Clint bought some AMSAT stamps awhile ago.

Thanks Clint, 

It's been a challenge keeping it running. When Cell #2 goes, most likely we will be done. We need Fox ASAP, along with FunCube, UKCube, Kiwisat, and the other imminent projects, and a gift launch for P3E. 

Please, if you use the satellites, or like the program, donate when and what you can.
