- RF Reflection from passing through space fence as it orbits over US -

The larger OAO 2 satellite passed through the space fence 6 seconds prior to the smaller Kwangmyongsong 3.

You can see the size differences by the reflection signal in the below graphic of both signal captures.

AUDIO of the RF reflection: First tone is the OAO 2 satellite, then 6 sec later is the tone from Kwangmyongsong 3
