    Hi Greg
    Actually I don't mind helping with updating the FAQs if nobody else is prepared to do it.  Though I would point out there are many better-qualified than me to do the job.  If I could help someone by describing in print how I observe satellites then I'll do it.
    On the wider issue of the FAQs, updating them would be eminently
    achieveable if the task was split between members, rather than leaving
    it up to one or two.  With important developments happening in space exploration now seems like a good time to update the FAQs to help new observers.  
    Just a thought...
    Best wishes
