IF your in the US, you DID sign paperwork to the effect that you would
follow ALL rules. I can't tell this
as you DID NOT include your callsign.

And THEY have to follow the rules of their country PLUS other rules and
regulations that YOUR country and
their country signed YEARS ago that are to be followed.

Well...THEY could put a block on reception of YOUR signal and NOT
retransmit it. Which the Kantronics units
[Bob correct me if I have the wrong equipment] that Bob used in the sat
are already programmed to do easily.
The FCC gives the right to any and ALL amatuers to ask that anyone NOT
use their equipment, wether they be
repeater, digipeater, or satellite owners.
