Please respond directly to me, not to the SeeSat-L list!

A good friend of mine, who is interested in satellite watching
but not yet obsessed with it, will be moving to the Bay Area in
October to do a two-year postdoc in computer science at Stanford.
Her husband, who is more of an EE/hardware/microwave/sonar/DSP
type, is also interested in amateur astronomy.

I would like to compile a list of amateur astronomy / satellite
watching resources in the Bay Area to pass on to her before she
leaves, i.e., astronomy clubs that Bay Area SeeSat'rs belong to,
web pages with satellite predictions for the Bay Area, local mail
lists related to satellites or amateur astronomy, et cetera.

If you know of any such resources, please send me the information.

P.S. In case you haven't seen it yet, OIG now has an interesting
     message on their web site:
        "NASA & USSPACECOM are looking at options for increasing the
         number of TLEs users can download. Anticipate selection of
         the approved option by October 1998."
