could we come up with a linear transponder package with 10's of Mhz of
bandwith (maybe 50Mhz+) and fly that?  what's really possible given the
design target of about 400 watts total power draw and say a moderate sized
(1M+) dish at the earth station?  being able to run DVB-S would be really
nice, as would having a place in the passband for ssb and cw.
