    all "s" SATs are spot beams, so they may or may not be pointing in your direction. I don't see any issues.

    Winters,...
    We do?? Do we have to? The worst acronym I've ever heard is "SCOTUS". It's not even properly cased, and it sounds too much like a body part. "POTUS":mad: is almost as bad.
    :D

    Well, at least there are three of you, so if one doesn't agree you can still get a simple majority going :lol:
