We are about 4 "ancient" HEO users over here who actually thinking selling or keeping their satellite apparatus. What's keep us from
selling is "Moon bounce" the only one way to actually effectively recycled our HEO stuff.
Our local Ham club is promoting a Moon bounce project (see the link below)
The amateur satellite business is now over for many of us as i have predicted when AO-40 failed. LEO sats where not enough to sustained a
critical mass of satellite operator. We are now watching the slow and silent demise of this part of our hobby and related organization.
Just hope you will find takers for your very nice rig.
