Here's an update on the satellite -
NASA has updated the status of its once-was-lost, now-is-found IMAGE satellite and revealed
the bird's power supplies are operational. The space agency will therefore attempt to revive the
mission – if it can find money to fund the effort.

I'm sure he will get a wonderful "AttaBoy" from somebody deemed important. Getting a finders fee or substantial reward is against the whole mindset of the amateur radio folks. It's all about pride and bragging rights, That is the real reward.

A nice plaque from the President would be an ultimate reward for a ham.
