As I think back on 2012, I find it hard to believe that the end of the 
world has passed and the end of the year is so near (urgh, another end 
of something). Especially when it is going to reach 74 degrees in 
Houston today (75 degrees on Christmas Day) and we still have our air 
conditioner running. We have to put our tree in the freezer just to get 
some frost on it. What's up with that? Is Santa going to be wearing his 
beach ware this year? Will the sled have pontoons?

AMSAT Awards are doing well although they were a bit shy this year 
compared to other years. Hopefully in 2013, they will pick up as new 
satellites are launched and new hams find their way to satellite 

We closed down the old AMSAT online store and dusted off all the 
products we had and opened a new AMSAT online store right down the 
street from the old one at the corner of Electron and Byte. Now newer 
and improved to serve you better.

73 and Happy Holidays...bruce
