    The upcoming launch of the Direct 10 geo sat, will use a new flight profile, then past launches.
    Usually it ends up the APT is in a 49 degree inclined orbit.
    The use of the new flight profile, will cause the APT to be place into a 45 degree inclined orbit.
    So since the inclination of it's orbit, is closer to my latitude, means better passes of it.
