[aprssig] Via route setup for ISS

Thu Dec 8 06:36:51 CST 2005

I used to setup my D700 similarly but you put a lot more thought into it
than I did.  I think I'm going to setup my D700 like yours.  I'm also
working on some 9600 baud terrestrial stuff so maybe I can start 'SGATE'ing
9600 baud packets from PCSAT2 onto the terrestrial network and onto the IS.
I ran 9600 baud on PCSAT2 (until the recent QSY) and had one packet gated by
VE5BNC-3.  :(

I think we are going to start working on a 9600 baud downlink SGATE to pass
packets to 144.39 (in the form of 1200 baud).

Yes, you have it correct!

I notice about 50% of satellite operators don't bother to use SGATE
and another terrestrial hop as part of their path.  They really are
missing out on non-Internet SatGates like the one I operate with my
D700 when I'm parked:
