RE: New South African Satellite



The issue is not the mode, it is the footprint of the bird.  The current
FM birds fly so low that their footprint is so small.  The FO birds and
AO7 fly at a higher altitude, so their footprints are larger.

I hope it would be mode K, T or A in order to bring more people closed
