I think we want to see all packets originated or digipeated by
the following callsigns on the APRS-IS:

For PCSAT-1: W3ADO-1, PCSAT-1, PCSAT-2, PCSAT-11, PCSAT12,
NODIGI
For ANDE: ANDE-1, ANDE-2
For ISS:  RS0ISS*

But the all of the 9600 baud special telemetry we were
collecting for the PCSAT2 experiment are no longer active since
it was returned to earth.

Hope that helps?  I'm still feeding to your satgate 10150... And
it seems to be working.
