It seems the NSF would benefit greatly from having a transponder on a
Molniya satellite that had an inclination toward the south. If the ham
community could build such a satellite and also put amateur transponders on
it, it would appear to be a win-win. I would venture to guess that hams
could build and launch a satellite for what NSF is paying for their lease
for the GOES-3 or LES satellites.
