Last I saw, he said "...we have not made up our minds" on the HF-to-HF 

A couple of years ago, when we were all talking about "Toss-Sats" 
(ready-built satellites that could be flown on a moment's notice and 
hand-launched from the shuttle or ISS, like SuitSat), I was going to 
actually throw a Mode A transponder together from an old Sonar commercial 
VHF rig on 2M, and an old CB (converted to 10M), just to satisfy myself that 
it could be done that cheaply.  Never got around to it, though....
