Re: XM1 keps and footprint

> The footprint covers all of the Americas except the northwestern third of
Alaska.  It also covers Hawaii, most of the Atlantic Ocean, plus Portugal
and Westernmost Africa (the edge of the footprint passes through eastern
Morocco, and eastern Ivory Coast).

Just a word of warning - although these satellites may be above your horizon
they will have very directional transmit antennae so you may  not actually
be in the footprint of the coverage. Probably somewhere there is a webpage
which shows the actual intended coverage?
