I cannot see where anyone answered Howie's question. No, you have it 
almost completely wrong. It is definitely a demod/decode/recode/modulate 
satellite.

We need the processing gain we get by using the 1/(R^2) loss advantage 
by demodulate decode at the satellite over 1/(2R)^2 path loss we would 
get from a bent pipe.
