Hi Rick,

Your first message about receiving the AMSAT Journal arrived via my Comcast
e-mail at Mon 8/24/2015 1:47 PM according to the time stamp. Throughput on
the modernized AMSAT e-mail on our leased servers is usually within minutes.
The vintage e-mail on a university server used to take longer.
