I am curious to see how your BPSK1000 fares on a rapidly tumbling
platform. Let's hope ISS doesn't start tumbling more than once per orbit!
If you do convince them to leave the ISS powered up on board ISS, we
could evaluate rapit deep fades in the channel by putting middle school
students in charge of holding an arrow antenna.
