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

it could be done that cheaply. Never got around to it, though....
