Re: AMSAT Journal info

I did some experimenting today, and scanned my latest Journal at various 
resolutions from 100DPI to 600DPI, and found that 150 was more than adequate 
for on-screen viewing, so they certainly don't need to be high-res, as they 
would be for mass printing...

Who do we need to talk to at AMSAT about proceeding with this?  And does 
anyone know WHY the Journals have not been released on CD-ROM since 2000? 
The ARRL puts QST out on CD annually, and in 5-year collections as well....
