Good idea - but the lines of communications to the Russian satellite
folks don't appear to be open to allow discussion about any
collaboration. To my knowledge, there has never been any collaboration -
so maybe the time is right if ITAR doesn't kill that idea off at the knees.
Perhaps a serious initiative by the AMSAT-NA Board might produce the
dialog permitting a joint Amateur satellite venture. There is the
AMSAT-R but I'm not sure how active they are. Nothing ventured - nothing
I would welcome any of our Russian Amateur (especially AMSAT-R) readers
of this thread to weight in with their thoughts regarding any future
Yes indeed - a very nice orbit!!
