	Been There, Done That.  

	15 years ago, the company I worked for dropped a 50meter earth
	station and the rights to four transponders for 25 years on a
	project that was donated to a non-us telco to reduce the costs
	of transporting and housing 300 engineeers a quarter to/from 
	the US. It was a very cheap alternative.
