I attended a presentation by Matt Ettus, N2MJI, at the Palo Alto  
Amateur Radio Association's monthly meeting about the Advanced  
Communications Package. The project sounded very interesting and as I  
remember, Matt said that the ACP project's goal was to send up these  
amateur stations on commercial satellites in the geostationary orbit  
so that it eventually, someday, gives a trans-global reach for  
amateurs with portable/handheld radios. This was supposed to be an  
alternative to the Eagle project.

I got talking to a friend and fellow operator who used to be very  
interested in amateur satellite work and he was very interested in  
knowing more about ACP.

Is there a whitepaper, wiki or some kind of documentation briefly  
describing the project?

I looked at the AMSAT site and could not find much. Any pointers will  
be appreciated.
