    Question New Ham Birds? For the long term...

    What new amateur radio satellites are slated for launch in the next few years?

    With AO-Echo going silent, then Envisat it seems like we're loosing them faster than we're replacing them

    Of course, there are *still* plenty to work!! There are still a number of hamsats that are alive.

    This is a long-term question.

    'Envisat" apparently had no Amateur Radio capabilities, so its apparent demise is really of no consequence to Amateur operators.

    Alas, poor AO-51. I knew you well..." (With apologies to Billy Shakespeare.)

    I somehow goofed on the Envisat reference, must have read the wrong chart.
