    Hi:
    
    It looks like KSC is launching the first of three Wideband Global SATCOM (aka 
    Wideband Gapfiller ) tonight (11 Oct 2007) that will have 39 channels each 125 
    MHz wide, i.e. more bandwidth than all the other sats in orbit.

    I'm guessing it will end up in a geosynchronous orbit around 7.5 deg West, i.e. 
    half way between Iran and the U.S. East coast.  Has the final orbit been 
    published?
