I recall making a few Mode T QSO's on RS-12.  What was strange was there 
was no Doppler on the downlink and it was very clear copy.  I recall 
hearing some UA's calling on the 15 meter uplink but there was no way 
they could copy the 2 meter downlink as the footprint only covered 
Northern Canada.
