Was the time dilation cancellation altitude ever proven experimentally?

http://www.askamathematician.com/2012/03/q-satellites-experience-less-time-because-theyre-moving-fast-but-more-time-because-theyre-so-high-is-there-an-orbit-where-the-effects-cancel-out-is-that-useful/

I cannot find any evidence on the internet.


Thanks in advance.

Why would they want to or need to?

To confirm SR & GR altogether. I'm surprised this wasn't done.

It shouldn't be very difficult to test because if you change kappa=c^2/G or the kinetic time dilation sqrt(1 - v^2/c^2) then you get an answer way over the margin of error.

SR is a special case of GR. Testing both at the same time doesn't make sense.

Ok thanks for your answers.
