>From the General question pool:

  G1E02 @G1A10 (D) [97.205a]
  Under what circumstances may a 10-meter repeater retransmit the 2-meter 
  signal from a Technician class operator?
  A.  Under no circumstances
  B.  Only if the station on 10 meters is operating under a Special 
  Temporary Authorization allowing such retransmission
  C.  Only during an FCC-declared general state of communications 
  D.  Only if the 10-meter control operator holds at least a General 
  class license
The (D) on the first line indicates the correct answer, namely that
it is legal for a tech to  transmit on a 2 meter uplink, when the downlink
is 10 meters (assuming the control operator of the satellite is licensed
to use 10 meters).

(I have never seen any claim that the same reasoning can not be
applied to satellites as is applied to terrestrial repeaters.)
