    Two one-way channels are normally used in digital two-way voice communication. Each channel is in effect-used only one half the time. A recent discovery of ours recognized that any one-way channel within a satellite spot-beam can be accessed by anyone in the footprint of the beam. In a two-way voice call, the two parties alternate (in principle) in their transmissions-when one speaks the other is ... View full abstract»
