With all due respect Robert, I think this is a pipe dream. The current
global economy is in serious, serious shape. 'Private Enterprise' may indeed
get into the field but even private enterprise operates on cash. Playing
around in space is way down on the food chain in these conditions. NASA has
always been heavily funded by the government and the current administration
has zero interest in participating further. The Russians have the upper hand
and their gov't seems willing to spend...for now. I'll bet you dinner it
will be years before you see another amateur satellite overhead.

Greg. well all I can say is that anyone who says that the US has "virtually
abandoned" crewed spaceflight is not up on current events. What we are
doing is transitioning from a program of the military industrial complex to
one which centers on private enterprise...and that will open space access
for a lot of things. And that will include amateur radio payloads. In my
view the association between amateur radio and human spaceflight has hurt
amateur radio more then it has helped.
Go read "The Revolution in Military Affairs"...and you will get the drift
