Ok, that makes sense. So the repeated signal I heard was simply repeated
attempts at getting the command through and were being interfered with by
the existing FM transmissions. All of the frames I collected would have
actually been DUV and not the same as the sounds I heard. Did camera mode
ever get activated during that third pass?
