Re: Idea for more satellites in short time

KISS principle, how about this then, get a VHF repeater happening with some 
solar cells on it, NO telemtry, NO backup systems, No nothing else but 
repeater and solar cells. Cart it up to ISS and throw it out the door, just 
like that disgusting SWATCH thing that they didn't even turn on (thank god), 
If it goes bung, it's a hundred bucks or so down the drain, plus our time 
and effort, but cheap and quick, you bet. (Launch costs (batteries) not 
included). A real get away special.
