No one has told me yet why it can not be done. Several have said that it 
couldn't be done for what amounts to POLITICAL REASONS ... but not to 
physical & technical reasons why it can't be done.
Tell DirectTV that it can't be done.

If Amsat-NA wanted to build a bird [FM or SSB/CW or Digital] and put it 
into a geo-stationary orbit over the USA and had the money and expertise to 
do so, tell me why it can NOT be done.

I never said that such a bird should be the only project in the future. I 
also see the need for world-wide sats, especially if AO-40 is lost.
