I am still a member Vince.  I am just not willing to "blindly" give 
money to AMSAT. I always look very carefully at an organization/charity 
before I donate money. Most charities don't pass the sniff test.  
Unfortunately AMSAT is falling into that category. AMSAT's budget is a 
joke and spending seems to be without direction or controls.

I will hold on to my money and wait for things to change.
