Ah, but in this case, the HAND satellite is an amateur satellite,

Thanks, I agree completely.  But fortunately, this group is a HAM group
and is already working with the IARU...

... and the flip side of that coin is also true, that if we dont have
people building amateur satellites then we will loose the amateur
satellite bands.... as we are already doing in many areas of the world.
