    Takes a couple days for a GEO injection to get into its final orbital slot. The launch will get it pretty close - then they have to drift it into place.

    Yes John, you are correct. But the difference to my calculations is not significant. Instead of losing $98MM in cashflow on GM installs in one year, they lose $91MM, in such a calculation change.
