That is because the PCSAT web page uses the PCSAT-1*
as a way of knowing the packet was relayed by PCSAT.
But when you use the WIDEn-N method of digipeating,
then the * is not applied to the PCSAT-1 but to the
used-up WIDE1-1 in your path.

So to really be seen on the PCSAT web page, people
have to use the non-n-N digipeating such as RELAY,
WIDE, APRSAT, ARISS ...
