[amsat-bb] GEO sats and the future

I have been in the hobby for over 12 years now and I've played around a bit
with working the sats, but I haven't been following the geosynchronous
satellite activity very closely since I've seen how difficult it is to get
launches of any kind.

Now that it appears that we are going to get to launch a satellite into
geosynchronous orbit, I'm curious what the future may hold for that
particular activity.  For example, I think it's fantastic that we will soon
have a sat in geo orbit, but I'm curious what if any plans are there to
potentially put up 2 or 3 more geo sats with full time linking between
them?   That has the potential to give the ham radio community global
communications via satellite.

Any thoughts or news on that front??   Or am I just not informed enough on
existing plans?

Thanks and  7 3,
