Re: alternatives

This would mean 3 years from now there would be only 1 functioning

HEO satellite in orbit to pin all our hopes on (assuming P3-E arrives

safely in orbit) with nothing else in the pipeline.  Having  more than

1 HEO up and running seems like a good idea to me.  Both Echo and

Eagle are worth while projects.  This should not be an either/ or

Best idea since sliced bread! I have no idea of what it takes to

accomplish that, but the pittance I donated to support EAGLE, I hereby want

it to go to
