Responding to the last two comments... Well it wouldn't completely defeat the purpose because I'm sure the majority of QO-100 users wouldn't want to have a skype call with you. What would be kind of ridiculous is if you had two users both going through this internet link to communicate over the transponder. It would be like cutting a land line or internet link in half and adding a radio link in between. Increasing complexity for no extra benefit. I guess you both get to feel cool operating QO-100 though. At the very least I'm sure we will see QO-100 operators set up remote links to their stations for their exclusive use just like we see HF operators do today. As for "closed repeaters," Karl-Arne is right, even over here in the US that is frowned upon and I don't think the FCC rules/regulations allow you to "own" any ham frequency/service.
