This feels kludgy.

I wonder if instead you can tweak the notion of duplicate detection.
Specifically:

  Why is it necessary?  Would storing data from multiple paths be overly
  burdensome in resources?  Allowing that could enable more interesting
  analysis.

  Even if dup filtering is in general necessary, perhaps packets from
  satellites could be given a pass on dup detection.

Letting the satellite-digipeated packets be stored anyway seems far
preferable to not reporting validly-heard packets.
