Re: WB9L cross-satellite again



This is indeed a strange situation.

But in my mind a "QSO"  did not happen.

I don't know.

This is making my Brain Hurt.

Cross bird doesn't fit.  Cross bird I would say were if the output from 
one bird went into another and got relayed.

Again My brain is hurting here.

WB9L copies N3TL on AO-51 at 435.300 +/-, in FM. N3TL copies WB9L on AO-16 at 437.026 +/-, in SSB. It seemed clear to me that a complete contact between these two stations occurred across both satellites.
