Merry Christmas to all my fellow space enthusiasts
Nice to see some informative Big Picture discussion here.
For all its worth; I believe a cooperative effort with an established satellite builder incorporating an auxilliary payload makes more sense than an independant effort with more complexity and cost.
Who really would'nt want a geosynchronise transponder?
Utility costs less than pride!
I'm extremely impressed with what amsat can do but a cooperative effort would be more practical with a greater chance for success.
I would put my meager resources towards a professional venture more than a risky one.
On another note; great to see amsat working on a new power system with the super-caps.
Happy holidays to all, pat
