THis brings up the other question about GO-32:  the "hole" above about 60 degrees elevation.  How about a horizontal dipole antenna oriented east/west.  Its "holes" will be on the east and west horizons, where a polar-orbiter will seldom be detectable.  

On all the "good" passes, the bird will be going through the dount, and not the hole.

(the really perverse programming task would be to link this up with a satellite tracker.  You could break off the terrestrial IGATE, and automatically turn it into a properly-configured SATGATE when the time was right.)
