This has me wondering if there are opportunities for co-launch, tethered
power supply sharing or upper-stage rocket-body piggybacking of Ham and
educational communication payloads....... our price per Kg could be REALLY
attractive given that they're launching four 700Kg birds PER launch! How
much fun could we have with a triple cube at these heights? Passes would be
visible for over an hour at a time... Cali could work the Gold Coast and
JA's at the same time!
