Hi Drew,

this is indeed very good news for AMSAT-NA

see also: 

Just as an example, when ITAR hit AMSAT,  some of our friends and team
members from the AMSAT P3-D (AO-40) team were so scared that they
stopped any contact with us.
They would not even tell us the time of the day..   With our hobby being
so communicative and peacefully, this was indeed a big hit and step back
for AMSAT and international cooperation.

However, my understanding is that it still needs final vote by both
chambers before it passes to President Barack Obama for signing.  But I
guess that's what everyone expects now and hopefully it will not take
too long..

So let's hope that this part get's soon history and that we can restore
and re-establish the good relationship and international cooperation
between US an the rest of the world, to work together on new exciting
projects for international friendship through ham radio.
