Are there currently any HEO satellites that are working? I like LEOs with a handheld, but the passes are just so fast that it feels like a contest pileup. While it can be fun and interesting, I'd really like to get on and actually carry on a QSO that is more than exchange of grid squares.

I gather that AO-40 is not doing so well, so I'm thinking I should try one that is a little easier. Any sugestions?

Hi Eric,

There are not currently any high earth orbit amateur
satellites that are functioning. Within the next couple years there will be an attempt to launch a new HEO satellite, P3E, which will be the successor to AO-40.
