[amsat-bb] email not getting back to me

As always, AMSAT being a 100% volunteer group anyone who has the ability 
and time is appreciated for their help to resolve this.  Our IT team has 
a lot on their plate, keeping may aspects of our servers running with 
amsat-bb and amsat.org just being the tip of the iceberg.  We have all 
of our Fox satellite development files on GIT and SVN repositories, we 
have Fox system inventories, and several Fox and other mailing lists as 
well.  And you can bet I'm bugging them to keep those parts working 
first! :-)
Not to mention memberships, other mailing lists within AMSAT, floating 
software licenses, there's a fair amount of stuff going on.

So I appreciate your frustration, but it is also frustrating when the 
time needed to make AMSAT work always falls to a very few who have 
volunteered their skills and time.

Please help out if you can, amsat-bb is a great place to share!

Thanks and 73

Jerry Buxton, NØJY
