Re: Fuel on the emergency communications(satellite)fire

Here here. Finally a rational suggestion. Basically two satellites in 
one. If the experimental section screws up it won't affect the users 
communication sat. If the experimental works, fine. But the main 
objective should be the safety of the commo sat for the users. If the 
SDR radio does not work it should not be able to threaten the 
operation of the commo sat portion of Eagle.

Then there would be two ground stations in effect. one the U/V and 
possibly a L/S linear for our users' commo needs. And the 
experimental station to handle the microwave digital ops.
