"So far, AMSAT-originated amateur radio satellites have been active in two orbit configurations known as HEO (High Earth Orbit) and LEO (Low Earth Orbit). Generally speaking, HEO's are geo-synchronous or geo-stationary (seeming to stay in the same position with respect to an earth-based observer's viewpoint)..."

I know that AMSAT (and other organizations) have launched satellites into Molniya orbits, but has any amateur satellite ever been placed in a truly geostationary orbit? If so, which one(s)?
