Re: geostationary packet sattelite

Authorized by...

     Certainely a good idea, but when I see the mess on the MIR packet 
     repeater, I am wondering what will be the result .
     I have already had the idea and ask. The answer was that the owner of 
     a geostationary satellite would prefer to ad 1 kg of properlant to 
     increase the life time of the satellite of 1 minute! ( or 1 month) to 
     get more money from the use of the payload than to put 1 kg of payload 
     that he can not get revenue.

Has anyone ever tried or thought of a geostationary packet satellite? All it
would be is a digi and nothing esle, a basic packet repeater.

What commercial companies are developing a geostationary bird?  maybe we
hitch a ride in one with a small digi (an ht sized transceiver, and a tnc)

it could help revive packet a bit.....
