No donations are used to pay for any development work or pay for any expenses other than the webserver.
Who pays for bandwidth, power, floor/rack space occupied buy the server etc or is that going to addressed as a seperate issue?

Most odd, I have not tried it out, but was under the impression that most units had a disable feature that rendered them useless above a certain speed/altitude, so as the units could not be used in guidence systems for less savoury activities....or is this an urban myth?

Did we ever establish a person/persons/entity to accept funds for GCA?
