I personally don't think you will find a single conduit with greater
information on the satellite community than right here on the
AMSAT-BB.   While not all emails interest me I have the free will and
ability to utilize my delete key.

To insinuate the AMSAT-BB isn't for people who WORK satellites is
false.  This year alone, there have been email threads discussing new
transponder satellites, special event operations (W1AW,) hamfest
operations, and talk of future launches.  There is a world wide
audience on this BB and quite possibly not all of them are in our
mutual footprints.  Not everyone chases grids and awards.

A recent grid expedition was posted on the AMSAT-BB.  As a result many
individuals have been chasing that mobile operator.  I've not seen
that grid expedition posted on any other email lists.
