Hi Chris,

Yes, I for one would look forward to that.  You know I have done some 
experiments with your relay program using minimal antennas in hopes that
AO40 would have those modes.  They really performed well on the low orbit
birds, but geo??

>Comments anyone?

Yes, I think a geo is real "pie in the sky"!!!  But perhaps there is some
new technology out there that I am unaware of!!
