Hi SeeSat-ers,

Having recently resumed the editorship, I just finished the 101th issue of 
"Flash", the english-language newsletter of the Belgian Working Group for 
Satellites. This issue is now going to Belgium where it gets printed and
sent to the 70+ subscribers. But the 300 SeeSat-L subscribers can also 
read Flash on the Internet, at the following locations:

1. SeeSat-L e-mail archive server. Send a message with in the subject-field
the words "archive get flash/flash101.uu" (without the quotes) to
to receive a uuencoded/zipped version of a postscript file containing all
38 pages of the current issue. This file is 280 Kb.

2. Oxford ftp-archive at this path:
(which is gzipped).

3. WWW at this URL:
