in. I have always had an interest in space and space related matters, =
growing up during the exciting Apollo era. My interest in observing =
satellites fits in well with my other hobbies of Astronomy, Amatuer =
Radio (I do satellite contacts and try every SAREX mission I can, oh the =
joy of 'seeing' what your hearing!), Satellite monitoring (Wefax, TVRO, =

   Growing up in Alberta, with large amounts of open space, one can't =
help but look up scan the sky (when its warm enough to go out to do that =
:-), waiting for Aurora, satellites, meteors ect.
In my other life (the one that earns the green stuff) I'm the systems =

the other fun factor in my life ... computers. I'm looking forward to =
being on the list, with others who share the enjoyment of watching those =
stars' that just don't stay put :-)
