We show that large-antenna earth-stations, communicating with geo-stationary satellite-relays and re-using spectrum via self-interference cancellation, can detect line-of-sight orbital debris. Higher frequency signals can spot and range debris as small as 5cm in diameter. We also provide new insights into the influence of weather and orbital debris on selfinterference canceller performance.
