RE: OSCAR-E question

I believe that Oscar-E is to be a LEO.

I also understand that the HF is a receiver not a transmitter with LF to
L-band coverage.

As far as heat goes, this is basically the same physical layout as the
microsats. If they had heat problems then there may be an issue but I am not
aware of any problems.
