The "will work" is the EASY part.  Everyone knows that. But the HARD part

1) Just surviving the extreme heat and cold
2) the Several week long period of total darkness (no power)
3) Pointing the gain antennas.
4) getting it there!  (a few trillion dollars)...

The Radio part is trivial.  No one is condeming the project based on the
RF calculations.
