Re: WB9L cross-satellite again



Wouldn't it have to be, for true cross-satellite operation to occur, the downlink  of one satellite to be on the uplink of another? I am also not sure this is true "cross satellite" operation. I would have to agree with Auke, that any signal heard by the other sat would have to be a fluke.
