Be or not to be! That is the question

You pointed out the whole problem Steve. Actually we only (I know it's better 
than nothing the AMSAT-NA moto) have LEO sats and by definition a LEO sat only 
offer a limited time pass of between 10 to 20 minutes (at the best). If you 
added to this some of them are only a one channel system eg:AO-51 you are stuck 
with a very limited span of options.

If you added the human factor on top of this you ended up with questions as 
your one "HOW IS THIS EVEN POSSIBLE" and it is mainly related to this human 

Look around you and beyond you will understand how humans react and act often 
illogically.Many are acting as they feel they are alone on this planet...I just 
posted a message showing exactly what you refer too but on a different plane of 
discussion not related to what we usually read here.

Some agree some not but what we are missing actually is only common sense and a 
HEO. This will not solved all our problems but it will at least show that we 
are making a step forward instead of backward.
