Tim, *all* the sats are repeaters. Even the store-and-forward birds. I 
think the FD organizers realize this. But a terrestrial emergency is 
vastly more likely to disable an earthbound repeater than a satellite, 
and I think that's why they waive the rule.

the Minstry of Truth writing your copy again? :-)
