Re: FD Satellite ops

OOPs.  Didnt realize that some people would want to watch it all on a
browser, but yes, you can see ALL APRS FD stations at www.aprs.net
but the javaAPRS only displays positions, on the map.  You have to
activate your javaCONSOLE to actually see the QSO packets.  FD stations
will usually have an SSID of -6 and will be a TENT icon.
