Re: Ralphie and Sparky news



<<Instead, it appeared that the satellites were dragged further into space,
into an extremely elliptical orbit with a high point of nearly 20,000 miles
and a low point of a few hundred miles.

If that's what occurred, the students won't be able to contact the
satellites unless they happen to pass directly over one of the team's four
ground stations - in Arizona, New Mexico, Florida and Puerto Rico - at the
low point in their orbits, Olds said last night.>>>

Hmmmmmmmmm....if someone knew the frequencies to look for, I bet a number of
"volunteers" could fill in the "holes" around the world...what are
hams...."chopped liver"?
