Re: P3D



Perhaps this is an indication of when...


To move P3D from this orbit the arcjet motor will burn intermittently (at
perigee) over a 270-day period, with final inclination and apogee
adjustments made by the spacecraft's 400 Newton motor. "When these maneuvers
are completed and three-axis stabilization is achieved, the satellite solar
panels will then be spread out to receive full sunlight," said Haighton. "It
is anticipated that at this time the satellite will be fully operational for
use by amateur radio operators around the world."
