We talked way back in 1998 when you were onboard  MIR and I had set up a 
satellite station at Fulmore Middle School for a contact in Austin, TX

There seems to be a bad bug in HRD in that it doesn't properly control the 
910H in satellite mode. A new satellite module for HRD has been promised for 
mid-March, so in programming time, that's any month now.
