ESA Continues to Support Geostationary Satellite Project
On Sunday February 4th, Frank Zeppenfeldt of the European Space Agency (ESA) gave a presentation at FOSDEM 2024 encouraging feedback from amateur radio operators on the subject of a potential follow-up geostationary satellite to QO-100.
The satellite communications group of the European Space Agency (ESA) would like to support the collection of requirements, ideas and designs for a follow-up of [QO-100] in collaboration with IARU and various AMSAT communities. We would like to collect lessons learned and ideas on a QO-100 follow up, and trade-off some design together with amateurs, industry and ESA.
A geostationary satellite proposal for portions of Europe and North America was proposed in late 2023.
