  1. I’m not sure what is involved with “repeater coordination,” but I would like to see more repeaters linked together over further distances, without increased membership fees, if that is possible!

  2. The item “International Traffic in Arms Regulations; Impact on Amateur Satellite Service” seems to be an interesting one. I will be interested to see what comes of this. I also linked to this article from my website
