   True, but if they could develop a low-cost linear satellite, combine that with design assistance/ideas and donations from satellite users (AMSAT, ETC.) to offset the cost of the launch, we would be able to have a HEO fairly quickly. That would be better than just putting a CW beacon on the air from a LEO, right? Or would politics get in the way? Just a thought.  ...N1MIW

Universities don't need long life expensive projects.
They want something cheap that this years students can do this year.
Next year there are new students and new projects.
