Re: ISS Packet



Nevermind, the fog cleared, and except for "local" uplinks it doesn't make 
any difference does it? 

>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.<
