I would if I had a decent station. I love stuff like this, trying to 
learn why something is the way it is.

The only thing I can think of is solar weather conditions, Since I 
should have clarified that I'm talking about Mode "A" here only.

Soo wondering if some ionospheric stuff is effecting the down ward path 

OHHH COOL Idea! What a neat idea for a sat!?

A RBN reciever in orbit! and it downloads what it's hearing and just 
like a regular RBN it also tells signal strengths.  hmmmmm?
