Well, one-way, and I didn't have the presence of mind to try to make a cross satellite contact.
The end of the last AO-07 pass (which sounded very much like 20 meters!) crossed with the beginning of FO-29's, so the two satellites passed within a couple of hundred miles of each other. Since the downlink for AO-07 is in the middle of the uplink passband for FO-29, I switched over to FO-29 to take a listen. Sure enough, the bottom of FO-29's passband sounded like 20 meters for a few moments. Then it went away.
Fleeting chaos. Sweet.
