Re: [ao16aprs] Re: APRS TRAKNET Constellation

 Relay is a great idea, but perhaps the s/w authors will allow pacsat-1,
lusat-1, etc to be an alias for relay, internally in the s/w without any
user input other then relay. This would pose no problem for all the
terresteral station's as there on another freq. What I do now Tim is use
a terminal program in my palm pilot, to change the callsign. There is
also a great program for the palm called pocketsat that does a great job
as a pass predictor. So I always have my Palm with me anyway.
