    Hi Rob and the rest of you listers,
    
    Thanks so much for taking the time to address my comments personally.
    
    Before the misconception goes any further, I want to make sure that no one 
    thinks that my remarks were meant to disparage Heavens Above.
    
    My satellite watching commenced with a failed attempt to view Sputnik as a 
    boy, and after decades of observing, it wasn't until I found H-A that I 
    ever knew what I was watching pass overhead, or even when and where to look.
    
    I first discovered H-A when my daughter polished a mirror for the very 
    first Starshine.  It was H-A that introduced me to Iridium Flares, and 
    despite having downloaded and installed Iridflar, I still consult H-A in a 
    pinch.  Heck, I still use H-A for a quick look at all the brighter 
    LEO's.  You can't beat the convenience.
    
    To those of you that pointed out that you can select from the database to 
    view passes at > 5.0, yes I knew this, and had been using it for the NOSS 
    opportunities, until installing Quicksat.
    
    It took a long time for me to even begin to outgrow H-A, and I wanted to 
    make sure that everyone knew how much I appreciated Chris's fantastic effort.
    
    Best Regards to All,
    
    Art
