This is totally one for CIWARS and RISKS to go nuts on.
Paging service nationally going nuts? Doctors, emegency things, on-call
techs, all out of range because one satellite was taken out?

I wonder how they page their on-call techs when the paging systems themselves
My inference of the architecture is that the local switch feeds
corporate HQ, which sifts the nationwide pages, then forwards the
traffic via the bird _directly to the towers_. That's the only reason
I can see why the transmitters would go silent from a satellite outage.
If you know for certain either way, email me privately, won't you?
I'll summarize, but I don't think the intricate details belong here..
