Or use a FC dongle or other SDR software to record an IQ file for the transponder.
You could see all the stations in the passband, then play again and listen to each one in turn.

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.
