The sweat equity from countless volunteers is the secret sauce that’s kept AMSAT running for more than fifty years.

I was reminded of that again this morning when I downloaded the latest Gray Line Report published by the Twin Cities DX Association (TCDXA). It’s an excellent publication that I grab whenever I discover that a new edition has dropped.

The December 2020 report includes a nice member profile of Mark Johns, K0JM who, in addition to helping with the layout of the Gray Line Report, is also Senior Editor of AMSAT News Service bulletins. Yet another volunteer who keeps the organization humming along with work that doesn’t just happen on its own.

It’s a nice piece that concludes with Mark saying, “The only role I now have more important than “ham” is “Grandpa”.
