Re: [sarex] Iridium boxes any use?

I know this will sound crazy, but I wonder what would happen if a group of 
hams -- specifically amateur radio operators -- were to file for an 
injunction against Irridium destroying the satellites because of their 
potential as educational tool -- and as such it was against the public 
interest to permit their destruction.  

File the injunctive relief request in the 9th circuit court in San Francisco 
-- which will issue an injunction for just about anything one asks for.   
Then sit back and see where it all goes....
