We are set to launch the first of our 2nd generation communications satellite, which have more reliable power systems. Once deployed, the first generation satellites will be decommissioned and de-orbited. Once Kerbin's network has been upgraded, we will deploy networks to Mun and Minmus, establishing reliable communication throughout Kerbin's SOI.

Year 2, day 223.
With the automated scripts, this was a very easy mission. The probe launched into a parking orbit, then performed a manoeuvre to rendezvous with the old probe. Then, the probe performed a rendezvous, and then adjusted the orbit to have the preferred 90 minute period. Maybe we should have done that after all four probes were in place...
Unfortunately, KomSAT-1a was out of propellant and could not be de-orbited. Instead, it has been powered down.
