Re: Pacsat question

You check my web page, The Southeast Michigan AMSAT Net web page.
http://www.provide.net/~jsmyth is the main page and click on digital
hypertext.  Or go right to http://www.provide.net/~jsmyth/digi.html  .
There are images which were uploaded from other hams which I downloaded and
put on the page and there is also a couple images from the pacsat cameras
of the Earth.  These are some good examples of images from 9600 baud
digisats.  Also if you click on the images on the web page it will load a
larger image so you can see the quality of the uploads.  There would be no
different in the image quality from a 1200 vs. 9600 baud satellite.  The
different is in how long it takes to upload and download the image from the

Hope this helps!
