    Interesting, do you know if there are caveats/ operation range restrictions to avoid ground stations interfering with other satellites in the beam path (if that is even an issue)?

    "The Everyday Astronaut" did a Kerbal mock up of the deployment which make it clearer.

    Sorry the site insists in mangling the URL so you are the beginning instead of the time period where the good stuff happens. Here is the link as "code" so you can cut and paste it

    Part of the new post is to test to see if the link gets mangled. End it does get mangled by the site. Let me see if I can fix it. Nope, the board software insists on auto editing, that's annoying. One last try with https:
