May 19th was the anniversary of testimony I, and colleagues, provided to the US Senate in 1998. In it we even described ways to disable satellites. The next day 90% of pager traffic stopped due to a satellite (Galaxy) going offline. Can’t tell that story, but here’s the trip:

Remember the days... for me at least, the Fravia/ORC days in the 90s. Many nice folks. Old memories. @davidgerard
