> Interesting concept of GEO and LEO integration.
For what it is worth, APRS is doing something somewhat similar (but the
reverse) on Ham radio (and of course, free)....
We have a Ham APRS channel on 3 GEO Inmarsat birds giving us outbound
delivery everywhere on Earth with a simple raspberry pi receiver (except
upper alaska) Then we use the 3 APRS LEO satellites to give the return
channel to any ham anwyere on earth with his APRS handheld radio.
A neat system, ... though, looking for an application .... as usuall ;-)
