Ooooppppssss, Spike, you mean the Cubans and North Korean's I presume...
I suppose you could consider China communist, but that rope is slipping.

I'm also unsure whether these are private (wholly) Russian satellite owners.
Press releases I've seen indicate the companies are European or U.S. based,
though they may be renting Russian satellite time.

Well, if Spike has the standard deviation from the norm of experiences
he suggested in a previous message, I know where *I'd* like a camera...
Perhaps Steve Martin's "Wild N Crazy Guy" has taken possession of Spike?!?
I mean, who is the only person on the list who has actually been *trying*
to attach little cameras to little aircraft?

You gotta wonder.
