RE: Paul Lane comments

Paul, it is *not* just as easy to "put up both types".  Launches are very scarce, very expensive, very hard to come by and different orbits suit different types of operations.  As I remember Phil Karn (I believe it was) commenting at one AMSAT Symposium this *is* rocket science.

I think you people are nuts. What difference does it make what satellite I chose to start out on? Is it not just as easy to put both types of satellite up, inform people how they may access them, and let them decide which one they prefer?
