Well said Bob. I'll add one more thing: All of these options are available in existing projects that need our support.

That is easy!. The answer is of course ALL OF THE ABOVE.
The hard part is what can get built by whom. And who is in the best position to FUND it and get it launched. And then all the polls in the world mean nothing against what -that-person or entity wants or needs. And that is what drives what we "get".
Instead of asking what do we "want", maybe a more useful poll might be "what can you build us?" Just an aside. <wink>
If you want a new satellite/OSCAR wich payload/communication mode should
o Telemetry Beacon o Packet Radio Mailbox/Digipeater o FM Repeater o Linear Transponder o Educational payload o Other payload/mode
