Hi all

The TV people are not the only ones who are having problems.
See:

http://www.cnn.com/TECH/space/9805/20/satellite.outage.ap/index.html

http://satellite.miningco.com/library/daily/blgalaxy4.htm

for stories about pager user having a hard time as well.
Does anyone know what would cause such a failure? 
Would a meteoroid strike cause such a problem?

	Dear Sender(Michael),
I have been informed that TV wasn't the only bad target of the 
Satellite-- NPR (National Public Radio) had a problem when it went out 
at 6:30pm, May 19th. Their transmission of a program abruptly ended when 
Galaxy 4 "went quiet". The other NPR stations had to cut off the program 
and listen to "some music".
