Tubesats/Cansats are very interesting for some uses. Bob Twiggs is big on
them, and is so far as I know their launch customer. However, there are a
lot of issues which need to be addressed if you are interested in a
relatively long term, sophisticated satellite such as we need. In many
cases, the answer to a question about "how are you going to do _____" is a
blank look, or "we are working on that." ;) I wish them luck.

For those who are still dreaming for a HEO in the mean time just check
below you can have your own LEO/tube sat satellite for 8000$ launch
included payable with the major credit card and you even have payment
I'm just waiting to see one of them on E-Bay
As they said "TubeSats are designed to be orbit-friendly. Launches are
expected to begin in December of 2010." Probably the replacing
solution for our aging AMSAT-NA satellite fleet? Anyone with 8000$ can own
his own satellite let me guess in a couple of years the same
repeater frenzy will also reach the amateur satellite world. No more need of
club or organization or IARU frequencies coordination .
The perfect world...
