I'd still like people to weigh in and be aware of voting though, and our 
constitution still requires it to be announced to mailing lists, despite 
the final vote being held @ a board call.

Ed, I don't have Prime.  If someone else with HamWAN funding + Prime can 
order it from Amazon for Wednesday deployment (next week) I'm cool with 
that.  It needs to be in my hands Tuesday night.

Suggestions like Ed's are a great example of why we should keep folks 
generally exposed to the decision making process that takes place within 
HamWAN.  :)
