After performing ISS Bounce, the idea to do the same on ordinary satellites was a new challenge for Jan, PA3FXB and me. With the International Space Station as a huge test object, and the Dwingeloo Radio Telescope, PI9CAM, we were able to test strategies to receive at least reflections from smaller artificial objects in space.
After two years of preparation and continuous tests, we were able to complete a QSO via OKEAN-O.
