PayPal again......

 Is anyone aware of the fact that credit cards take 1.5 to 5 percent? Most
are 1.5 to 2 percent, AMEX takes up to 5 percent. It doesn't cost anything
to setup a PayPal account, so why not just do it. If someone want's to use
PayPal it will be there for them. I think the 90 cent difference per $100
isn't worth wasting electrons over.

After thoughts....

What does the 800 call cost AMSAT anyway?? How about young ops, who might
not yet have a credit card? People who don't have any credit?  Zombie AO40
operators, who are only up at night?
