Greetings to the List.

I am Tom Whitney, a new subscriber.  I am located, most often, very near to
Burlington, Vermont, USA.  I am an engineer, working for the local electric
utility.  I am an active member of AMSAT-NA and I have been active on
amateur radio satellites for about 5 years (N1GZZ).  I have been making
presentations on this activity to local clubs since 1995.  All this
activity (and my father's astronomy career) has led me to visual
observations of Shuttle, Mir and other well known objects .  I am equipped
and well experienced in pass predictions using Instant Track and 2 line kep
sets.  In Vermont, we are blessed with rather dark skies and my home has a
"big" sky ... few trees, etc.  

I look forward to some interesting observations this winter!

Tom
