So the object will be actually physically recovered from space. Have
the parts been selected for the Eagle yet? Maybe this is a way to put up
some DSP chips, or capacitors err, whatever other devices you guys are
contemplating, power them up during the test, and then check them out
later under a microscope to see how they do?
Receive only, hmm, how about this. I have zero idea how hard this
would be to do, but what about a receiver to create an 'RF noise
pollution' map. Something like the light pollution maps they have
for the astronomers. This is to create a visual aid to highlight the
plight of poor suffering radio operators and the ever rising noise
levels on the radio in the cities.
