Simple, BECAUSE YOUR HELLO? YOUR STATION did not make the qso simple
and period. a third station made the recieving part of the qso not
YOURS how can that be any clearer?

Yes I can he did not install fresh ones. Thats as valid as if his
reciever died in the middle of the qso and then got the tape from a
third station to get the information, he DID NOT finish the qso on HIS
ststion!! geez.. A qso for verification is between two stations not
three 4, 10, whatever.
If I was the ARRL or AmSAT or any award giving out org. and I knew this
station claimed credit in this way he'd be banned from all awards for life.

So you can hear what signals sound like? I dunno for sure. But if they

But see thats the limitations of his station, in your thinking then we
have a Low pass happening, the sat is about to set, you get your sig
to him but it sets just as he is sending it to you. In your theroy all
he needs to do is get the recording and see what his sig report was? ya
got to be kidding!!!

But see that is a rule for a QSO between you and the other station,, no
other stations involved.
