Re: iss packet

Yes....but what is to keep that from happening when 35 ms after ISS's last 
packet, every TNC in a 1000 mile radius decides it's time to transmit? You are 
reducing a percentage of collisions with ISS, but aren't you actually creating 
one large collision by setting up a timing point? 

It would be interesting to compare the throughput of "hundreds" (for want of 
a number) of "random" uplinks to the same quantity of "timed" uplinks to a 
constantly changing target such as ISS. It hurts my brain to think about.
