i think i have a bunch of ao40 qso's on my website. http://www.amsatnet.com/audio.html

problem is you are dreaming of reliving a time in history when we were fortunate to have launches that were reasonably priced. today, we take what is free and if that means proliferation of cubesats and nonosats so be it. 

if you are willing to pay for a heo launch, let your favorite amsat know and they will construct a heo for you to launch. 

otherwise you should stop hampering the dreams and aspirations of those building launchable satellites today. history might repeat itself but not without a lot of money.
