Why don't you join AMSAT and or the ARRL?  That way you can financially
support those institutions that make ham radio work.  If everyone just
wanted "free" information, we'd have no members to support our projects.
Sure membership is not required to use the birds, but everyone that helps
support AMSAT is helping to ensure that very expensive projects like P3D,
ARISS and what not will keep coming our way.  Someone has to pay for these
toys, yet everyone gets to use them.

To answer your question as to why it's not available, I think I have
answered a lot of that.  Secondly, I don't think an exact timeline has been
established yet.
