Hi Scott,

Certainly it's FUNCube-1 via FO-29. That's not so common, but I've seen
a few reports of this before on the mailing list. Someone even managed
to decode the telemetry. Probably you can google if you're interested in
previous reports. Also, satellite-to-satellite QSO is also possible for
some pairs of satellites and has being done (for AO-7 and FO-29 as far
as I can remember). Note that the transponder of FO-29 is quite wide and
will retransmit a lot of birds that downlink on 2m, so lots of
possibilities for reception via FO-29.
