I'd be happy with another AO-40 style bird that worked as advertized.  Given
that there is always the possibility of something going wrong along the way
I was sorely disappointed that it happened to THIS one.  I'm sure that
someday AMSAT will give us a long period orbit bird, standing by -- antennas
dusted off...  It would be nice, but probably not practical given the huge
workload of the ISS crew, that they could send the major parts up in
sections and have it assembled there and then pushed out the airlock to be
launched.  Yes, I know "Welcome to Fantasy Island!"

Neglect the "First geosynchronous" article. I did not write it and it is
like all mistakes, firmly in archives and not fixable.
