RE: Iridium boxes any use?



Not very likely.  Our government in it's infinite wisdom gives businesses a
tax write off for the complete value of any equipment that is permanently
destroyed.  In order to get this tax credit, there cannot be any salvage
value gained.  That even includes donation to non-profit organizations.
This is probably their motivation for wanting to deorbit the satelites as
well.
