Good idea.  And I think a lot of the "time limited" birds can be judged a
success on objective information.  SO-35 is a classic example.  While it is
time limited by its power budget, one of the (many) reasons is because it
uses a high (for an LEO) powered transmitter - around 10W, IIRC.  Might
drain the battery, but lots of handheld stations around the world would rate
it as a success. :-)  Some of the tricks I've pulled on that one have been
possible only because of the generous amount of RF available to override
local noise.
