With RS-12, when 10m was open, the satellite could be hard to hear at lower
elevations. However, you could sometimes hear it (and use it) while it was
on the other side of the planet.

Here's a good write-up from DXCC #1 on RS-12:

For anyone with access to QST archives (online for ARRL members), this article and a good sidebar are available in PDF ofrmat from the August 1995 QST pp 85-86 as well as another article he references therein on a 'how to primer' for RS-12/13 from the February 1994 QST p 58.

Go here and search 'RS-12' in the given months and years:  http://www.arrl.org/arrl-periodicals-archive-search
