That's textbook radar theory - see:

Provided that you have enough EIRP (EME rig?), I would expect that 6m or 
2m would probably be a good choice of band, since shorter wavelengths 
are more likely to undergo optical scattering, which might not be in the 
direction of your intended RX.

On this subject, have any hams tried using the ISS as a passive RF
