That is some pretty good stuff for higher powered xmitters...But I 
doubt there is any instrument sensitive enuff to measure the 
reflection potential from any satellite we will ever launch, and the 
"shadow" that it would cause on a LEO is in less than a 
second...HEO's may take a little longer....

This is conjecture based on my HS physics...I would appreciate 
comments from any of the many engineering experts we have on here...
