question, What is the cost comparison between launching 1 HEO sat vs. a constellation of LEO sats similar to what iridium has flying?
Wiki quotes the cost of the Iridium constellation at $6 Billion http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iridium_(satellite)
An HEO satellite could cost $4 million to launch add to that the cost of the satellite itself, maybe $500k using volunteer labour.
