Re: Internet linked AMSAT ground stations

We are making good progress on our linked ground station network for
Amateur satellites.  The following is the progress on the MIR sites:
       Maryland USA    on line full time
       Madrid   Spain  on line full time
       Mexico City     in work
       Texas USA       in work
       Chicago USA     in work
       Argentina       in work
       South Africa    in work
       Hawaii          ?
       Taiwan          ?
       California      ?
       Australia       ?

We still need a feed from Japan, eastern Europe and any other areas more
than 1000 miles from any other site.

To see the live combined TNC data stream, TELNET to port
10001, DURING any pass over Maryland or Madrid.  To see the daily captured
PASS files over Maryland BROWSE to:

We also have one AO16 automated station volunteer in Pennsylvania so
we can begin mobile position/status communications via AO16.  Still need
another station out west...
