Damon if there is any way you can convince the taxpaying public to
provide the financial assistance necessary to pay for the ride, be OUR
I have no idea what your experience is with the topic, but I can tell
you mine.

I'm 91 years old, been interested in satellites in general since the
term came into use, and my first contact was on O7 some time in the 80's
and have been
active in one way or another since.  Our first rides were free, all the
engineering and construction by volunteers.

And an AMSAT member since its inception......

Can you recommend a way to do that without an organization???

Please don't dazel me with anymore of your electronic genius, I don't care, I would like to see it in space in the form of a bird that we can talk through. One that just doesn't beep beep beep . I would be good to see this BBS used for making contacts in grids ,states and friends.
