If you are interested to find out more about the efforts to secure our own GEOstationary satellite over the Americas, please join the new GEO IO group.
All digital modes will be possible through it.
Save those old Direct TV dishes...

Echostar 9

So, there is a proposal out from ORI (Open Resource Institude) for rented bandwidth on Echostar 9 at 121 deg West.
All the FLdigi modes will be able to be repeated by it.
The uplink is via an aggregator on commercial frequencies.
The downlink is direct on 12 GHz, but you must homebrew your receiver.
This could be a SDR dongle and SDR# Windows software.

aggregator on commercial frequencies

Not sure what this implies. Any guesses?

Combines all analog ham radio inputs.
SSB, FM, CW, etc.
Digitizes it and multiplexes it.
Then uplink transmits it as a digital TS (transport stream) to the satellite.

Springs to mind , 

How is  the aggregator  accessed ?

Details are forthcoming.
But it could be via VOIP, Skype, Echolink, www.remotehams.com 
Or, VHF/UHF, HF.
Also Skype video, FaceTime, etc.
Preliminary ideas, some of which will not work for Emcomm, but will be great for experimentation.

See and add more ideas on the GEO .IO Group.
