Yes, kind of refreshing.  Recently I proposed a coordination and 
scheduling net for VHF+ weak-signal enthusiasts to be held on 
IRLP.  It would provide a bridge between Alaskans and hams in the 
Pacific NW that share an interest in long-distance VHF/UHF/Microwave 
modes between us.  But I guess the idea was before its time as it was 
met by indifference and the few the replied were split on liking the idea.

Your ideas of an Amsat IRLP Net is an excellent use for IRLP.
