And this is ESPECIALLY true when working the APRS Satellites
since they add +/- 3 KHz of frequency error due to Doppler.
Some of these wide-splattering signals we hear all the time on
144.39 would never make it into ARISS or PCSAT's except at the
center of the pass.

By the way, the ISS is back on the air with APRS digipeating
finally after being off for 90 days...   Oops, I just checked it
and the last packet is now 24 hours old... I guess it may be off
