    I know that was the plan when the mailing list &
    sci.astro.satellites.visual-observe newsgroup were set up.
    However, not everyone can get to general news; I can only post to the
    group on evenings & weekends from my home PC.
    Newsgroups are also stalked by spam-bots; if I post to the group, I get
    more spam for the next few months!
    So the SeeSat-L mailing list is safer, more private, & offers more
    timely access to information.
    Is it worth setting up separate e-mail lists for "I saw ISS" and
    positional / flash observations?
    Or the observations could be uploaded to an ftp site? Whatever is good
    for the observers ...
    Best, Mark
