    This figure has to include the studio equipment and operating budget.
    The transmition equipment would cost a LOT less than even four mil.

    Presumably the airplane configuration was the same "Stratovision" concept used by Midwest Program on Airborne Television Instruction in the 60s.

    I have read about Stratovision,
    but why not launch a geosynchronous
    bird with a narrow spotbeam on Cuba?
    I would suggest using the infamous
    international clear television channel 37.
    Do we all know about channel thirty-seven?
