Re: [fieldops] What do you do with satellites?

Sounds like a great topic Eric.

Thanks for thinking about it and following up.  I look forward to the 
article.  Are you going to be able to make it to Atlanta later this month 
for the Symposium?

Obviously I am interested in the the telemetry and understanding how the 
satellite operates and adapts to changes in eclipse period and distance from 
the sun.
