    Duncan Campbell,  a reporter who writes for the Guardian in the UK,  has
    asked me to relay his interest in the rumor that JUMPSEAT/TRUMPET ELINT
    satellites in Molniya orbits are, in fact, flying in the vicinity of Molniya
    comsats in order to intercept the uplink to them.
    
    I doubt that this is more than an urban legend, but people who
    telescopically observe Molniya-orbit objects might consider looking into the
    question.  Duncan's e-mail address is duncan@gn.apc.org .
