Intelsat lost a bird



Heard from another ham who had StarBand data service up until recently...

Not 100% AMSAT-related, but interesting nonetheless.  Interesting 
implications for rural broadband and that industry...

"The satellite owner, Intelsat, says the craft [IL-8] had suffered a 
sudden and unexplained electrical anomaly and that it was permanently lost."
