You know this is a good point.  Geo seems to be the Holy Grail for most
satellite folks.

I'm not sure how fun it would be as it would pretty much be like Skype at
that point. Molniya orbits, now those are fun.

Just my opinion,

When Clint wins the lottery, three things will occur -

1. I will approach AMSAT-NA for a geosynchronous bird project over the US
... or whatever 
project "needs" to be commissioned at the time.

2. I will contract with Kenwood have 5,000 HTs made. They will be made for
visually-impaired hams in thew world. Voice prompts for EVERYTHING ... in
languages ... made in concert with HandiHams' input. And donated to them. It
irritates me 
that the industry hasn't done this already - but you and I know exactly why
- the big
firms do not think there's money in it for this market.

3. Pay off my first mortgage.
