France Dissolves its AMSAT Group

The members of AMSAT-France have decided to disband. Newsline reports that on April 11, twenty-one of the organization's leaders met in an Extraordinary General Assembly and voted, 11-10, to disband. No reason was given for the action.
In other ham radio news from France, efforts continue to secure a 6-meter allocation for French amateurs and to legalize several digital modes that are not currently permitted.
