I've recorded and posted SDR recordings and screenshots before. Might be
more accessible for folks as a simple youtube video tuning from one end to
another....of course, most of the time everyone is piled up in the middle

Unrelated, but it would be great if someone with a good satcom station
recorded the passband of FO29.  Not so much to get individual QSO's but to
grasp what a full wideband transponder can carry.

IE, tune the passband from one end to the other at a constant rate.

Then again, and again, and again at the same rate.  Maybe separate files for
each scan so we can tell when a complete scan begins and ends.

This would give those who are unfamiliar with wideband linear transponder
operation what the capability really is under FD loading...

Just a thought.
