PCSAT-1 digipeater on 145.825 is still going strong
and working well. The activity page
http://pcsat.aprs.org is showing about 75 stations
in the last 2 days. This won't last much longer.
PCSAT-1 is now back to 30 minute eclipses headed
towards worst-case of 35 minutes in the next week.
We should be able to keep her alive indefinately as
long as stations do not user her in the dark and we
command stations never let her 68 hour command
watch-dog timer time out...
Anyone can work PCSAT-1 with ANY typical 1200
baud packet station on 145.825. Just set your
path to UNPROTO APRS via ARISS (the same that
you use via ARISS on the ISS or via PCSAT2).
Mobiles with the D700 or the TH-D7 HT APRS
radios will see packets directly on thier front
panel and can work it from their mobile.
