    I had to go waaaay back to 1996, but I found the archive link:
    
    <http://www.satobs.org/seesat/Feb-1996/0092.html>
    
    Now, over 6 years later, I could no doubt update these numbers
    using better values for inband solar power, and radiometric
    conversion to visual magnitude, but the end result will be
    pretty close.  The main uncertainty in that calculation was
    the tether inband reflectivity.
    
    Cheers,
    Rob

    If someone can find your analysis and you approve, or if you'd care
    to recreate it, that would seem to make a worthy addition to the
    FAQ that's currently being discussed on UseSat.
