Re: 1200 Baud AX.25 digipeaters in space!



Bob,

I read your web data and have read your papers a while back.  I went to
your web site and reread ...

So you've made a proposal.  I'm very curious, are the results of any
tests posted anywhere?  I am particularly interested in how reliable a
portable uplink was to the bird during the test, if any were tried.

Gives us a status on any future life for your APRS picosat.  Is there
any chance that device will ever fly?  Another incarnation?
