[amsat-bb] FUNCube-1 (AO-73) Telemetry via FO-29??

While monitoring FO-29 for activity tonight, I saw what appeared to be the
distinctive waveform of the telemetry stream from FUNCube-1.

Is this common?  Or even possible?  It was certainly a first for me.  I see
that the telemetry frequency on FUNCube-1 falls inside of the uplink range
for FO-29.

The signal was a little too weak for me to decode with the FUNCube
dashboard ground station app, but I made some screen shots if anyone is
interested.  My Tweet with pics is at:


FUNCube-1 was over Alaska & FO-29 was flying North-to-South down the
Eastern US.  Would that put them in sight of each other?

If this is what happened, then it's my first satellite-to-satellite
reception, which I thought was pretty cool.
