I have also observed a digital signal that appears to be 9600 baud packet in
the FO-29 downlink transponder bandpass.
It does continue after FO-29 has gone below the horizon.
I haven't been able to determine another satellite it could be coming from.

I would like to know what it was on the 29 downlink;), however it was
"something" on that downlink frequency. What it was I have no idea but it
was a couple of times that I picked this up and it wasn't terrestrial.
I heard it also when mobile with my 857 and a RHCP antenna.
