Re: Sat Comms.

Well testing my latency from here in the Mid-East, I get the following from pingtest;

London server - Coventry - 766 ms - jitter - 251 ms

US server - washington - 654 ms - jitter 23 ms

AUS server - sydney - 1,518ms - jitter 756 ms

And using cmd to ping google's DNS gets the following;

8.8.8.8 - 676 ms

The ground station IP is registered to Globecomm Europe B.V. in the Netherlands and a bit of sluthing says that the bird I'm connected to is Telstar 12 (formaly Orion 2) parked in a 15 Deg West orbit and launched in 1999.
