Two Sats



If two sats like Hamsat (or Echo) were in orbit at the same time and 
could see each other ...

Could User#1 uplink to Sat-A and then Sat-A would link to Sat-B 
(probably on one of the higher microwave bands) then Sat-B would 
downlink to User#2 and User#2 would uplink to Sat-B and be relayed to 
Sat-A and down to User#1 ??

If this could be done there would be a much larger footprint and 
launch costs would be far less expensive, correct?
