Re: SUNSAT reported dead



What, prey tell, was the "dual frequency" transponder?  I thought all
transponders--other than  the parrot--are dual frequency.

Speaking of the parrot, I have a QSL for a parrot contact on a US East Coast
pass.  I understand there weren't many parrot contacts on those passes.
