The same way you do it now. Because the satellite downlink is
inherently a broadcast medium, there's nothing to keep any interested
station from demodulating the same transmission. In fact, with TDMA
(but not FDMA) it's trivial to demdulate everything at once. But you
probably wouldn't want to actually *listen* to 20 QSOs at the same
time. :-)
