Dual Hop


I few days ago now, ANDE-1 and RAFT were 
simultaneously visible from my QTH, and everyone

it seems that the satellites are configured to 
prevent this. I wonder if there are any plans to 
try a dual hop - perhaps later when the satellites 
are near the end of their lives.

I presume too, that when they are in sight of each 
other, RAFT would been keeping ANDE awake. Is this
