Re: a040

Dear Martyn,

To be a spaceborne object, the signal must have all the following:

 * Correct azimuth and elevation
 * Correct polarisation
 * Signal must vanish with az/el changes commensurate with antenna beamwidth
 * Correct frequency
 * Correct doppler shift
 * Correct doppler shift change with time [this one is the clincher]
If it fails any of these, it is not your proposed target. 

To be useful, a report must include:

 * Date and time, UTC
 * Station Latitude and Longitude (not a locator, please)
 * Supporting evidence per above.

No more than the rest of us;-)
