With a little more "push" is it possible to have just a slightly elliptical orbit? I don't know what brand of batteries they put in VO-52 
but they probably put a small pink rabbit in it as they don't seems to bother too much with their power budget...

What's is funny is the commenting on the perf board model AMSAT-India was showing couple of years before the launch of VO-52, some where 
commenting on the jumper wire perf board modelling as if it was not something who will never be able to work...

AMSAT-INDIA just doing an excellent and professional job on VO-52 they even put 2 transponder in the same satellite "too strong never 
broke". I'm convince their new orbit will cover quite some area on earth..
