  Recently heard some chatter about putting up a ham satellite (geo stationary?) with a web linked SDR receiver!  Could create some interesting possibilities!  Thoughts?

If this is true I would work this sat. Would it be FM or SSB?

   Could be both.  Advantage would be that individuals with very high noise levels, or hams in HOAs with compromised antennas, could actually hear incoming signals through the web linked satellite SDR.  The satellite SDR would probably be able to hear vast numbers of ham stations that are thousands of miles apart, due to its high altitude.  Could almost act like some sort of HF repeater.

It couldn't be geo-stationary if it was to pick up HF, because that means about a 22,236 mile altitude which would place it way, way beyond the F2 layer of the ionosphere.
