Hi Bruce,

Sadly the mission was reprofiled from the original GTO concept to LEO some 
months back. The final orbit has not yet been confirmed but the satellite is 
being designed for a baseline orbital height of between 600-800km  sun 
synchronous with a 97 degree inclination.

Still worth having tho!

Wow, I hadn't realized that the amateur payload includes the
following: "A U/S Transponder – either  FM voice and/or  linear/with
DSP; A U/V Transponder – linear with DSP; A C-Band beacon." It looks
like a full-package HEO is in store for us in 2012.
