I am not British and cannot

I am not British and cannot sign the petition, But I would advice my British friends to suggest that Jodrell Bank can help tracking foreign satellites and/or Near Earth Objects like only Arecibo and Goldstone can do today. Probably their Government cannot distinguish a radiotelescope from a planetary radar.
