Bob, It might have been human error, but I'm sure it was an honest 
mistake.  We had volunteers dealing with a cutting edge satellite.  We 
learned how to do new things with AO-40.  On the next satellite we put up 
we'll learn from past experiences, and possible mistakes that were made 
with AO-40 won't pop up on the next one.
