I could not agree more, Bob....We have to attract more people that 
are interested in AMATEUR SATELLITE COMMUNICATIONS and not just those 
that go down to the radio store, buy an HT, get on an FM satellite; 
claim amateur satellite proficiency.

If so our treasury should be burgeoning with money from new 
operators, and contributors to an AMATEUR COMMUNICATIONS 
SATELLITE.... If we are,I have seen no reports to that effect...

Good pics from Dayton, Bob, wish I could have made it.., and Leanore 
and I will really boost up the age group in Foster City!!  I'm going 
to try and convince Harley Gabrielson to join us there..... Not too 
many young faces in all those fine pics!!
