[aprssig] PCSAT2 Packet/FM Repeater Experiment

This Thursday, 29 Sept on two morning passes over 
the  Eastern USA, Naval Academy students will 
attempt a special experiment via PCSAT2.

They will watch for APRS or UI packets heard via 
the PCSAT2 145.825 uplink and will QSL those 
packets by VOICE on the 437.975 downlink.  The 
two passes involved will be 0850 EDT and 1026 EDT.

Users who want to participate should transmit 
their packets on 145.825 VIA ARISS, and although 
your packets will be digipeated on the 435.275 
downlink, the fun will be to see if the midshipmen 
can speak to you in response on 437.975 FM voice.

To minimize interference, just during these passes, 
the normal ARISS packet system on 145.800/145.99 
will be temporarily disabled.  This is a new un-tried 
experiment, so there are no guarantees of success, 
but we thought it would be fun to give it a try.
