What is their life-span?

I've been looking into putting a couple of amateur satellites up in orbit and I was wondering what kind of life one of these things has. Depending on actual cost and life span, you could probably build a pretty robust AmSat mesh and just send a couple up every so often to replace the dead ones.

And if not for AmSat, I'd like to see someone create a network of satellite for the free exchange of data without government interference (Radio Free Space, so to speak)
