    ...than ever before, it seems, I'm finding Iridium flares.  Maybe its 
    I've spent the past 6 months with Motorola MCSI selling phones and 
    service or
    perhaps it could be Spring Fever or just the clear nite sky.  Maybe 
    its because
    I've been in the sat biz for the past 18 years and just feeling 
    nostalgic but
    # 86 brought tears to my eyes over Apple Valley CA last Saturday nite. 
    on time as always and there was an EXTRA special moment in the glow 
    for me as
    I was calling my voice mail on a still-working 9500 phone while 
    observing and
    knew the call was connecting thru that particular bird.  Tonite, 
    (Tue), I watched
    # 52 North of here in Twin Peaks (near Lake Arrowhead) from INSIDE my 
    room.  (From where I've made Iridium calls.)  More than the pay 
    checks, I'm
    REALLY gonna miss those lovely lites one of these days!  Anyone else 
    out there
    with Iridium blues?  FYI...system was still operating 2 hours ago.
