Better yet Bob,,
If they can do it on HF there is absolutely no reason why it could not
be done for the transponders passband.
Use a SDR type of radio.
If they can actually record like CQWW actually record every band for the
full 48 hours. And they can then forever actually look up an exact QSO
say station violated the rules at 13:45 zulu in 20 meters at 10.027.776
they can actually que up that exact time in the contest and listen in
live just like it is really happening.
I know a local VHF/UHF station that uses SDR now, and like during the
recent June VHF/UHF contest, it isn'ty like the old days where you have
to tune the whole bands looking for signals. He has on his monitor(s)
All the bands 6, 2 220, 440, 902, 1296.. laid out in a spectrum monitor
mode and all he has to do is keep an eye open for a pip of a signal on
the passbands and click on it and work them.
So he can see all the band on every band, so there is no reason why what
they do on HF can't be done on the birds passband. sEE THE WHOLE THING
AND RECORD IT LIVE TO BE ABLE TO BE PLAYED JUST LIKE IT'S HAPPENING LIVE
OOps caplock sorry wasn't yelling..
