Low earth orbit allows for better clarity and relay of messages. Sats have been known to lose reliabilty with cloud cover and distance due to unknown
anomilies. So the closer it is the better "reception" they will recieve. Not to mention high orbit space is congested as there is virtually hundreds
of sattelites for GPS and such.
Yes true that is all right.
However a LEO satelitte would be kinda useless because to communicate with it you would have to have an antenna which tracked it as it orbited across
the sky. Im just stumped trying to think of a purpose for a satelite which requires anyone using it to track it with moving antenne.
