Re: 9600 Baud PACSAT NEWBEE Observations

As a WISP user (from the past few years, not lately) I never had problems 
downloading my personal files because WISP prioritizes them and ensures 
that mine get to my station before other files.  The downloading of the 
directory is automatic and, I believe, makes use of other directory 
downloads that other stations initiate.  The WISP program does ask for 
fills, though.
