Emergency operations
Digipeating via ISS with uplink on 145.99 might
work better.  I think there are more statinos
IGating there where the signals are much stronger
and little doppler comapred to PCSAT2 which is
10 dB less and on UHF and with 20 KHz doppler..

You would get data between about 7 PM till about 4 AM
but this is moving earlier every day by 23 minutes.

Sounds like an excellent excuse to use PCSat2, if Bob would give it
his blessing and the posit rate was reasonably low.  Wasn't the
input freq for that satellite on 2-meters?  Can't recall.
