Amateur radio module on commercial Geo Sat?



Hi all, I have been curious about the possibility of installing a amateur
radio module on a commercial satellite that would be launched into a
geosynchronous orbit.

This would seem to make sense - lease or buy space on a larger commercial
satellite instead of trying to develop one.

Perhaps the amateur radio community could offer the owners of the
commercial satellite some excellent public relations potential by allowing
schools to use the module for science projects Ect.

Just curious and dreaming while waiting for AO-40 to say Hi again.
