Yes, the basic article is well written.  Could we perhaps contact:

Richard Hackney, N1ASA
Professor of Physics and Astronomy, Western Kentucky University
Director, NASA Kentucky Space Grant Consortium

and suggest modifying his article to include information on using full duplex?
If he were to understand that his article would reach wide readership 
as a tutorial for beginning satellite users
...well, he might be quite responsive to making these changes.

If he is not so disposed to writing it, then inform him that an 
appendix would like to be attached addressing duplex operation.

just my thoughts on this
