145.900 is not just used by pacsats!

For those running mobile APRS on 145.900 for the pacsats
please note that 145.900 is also the downlink for AO-10
where ground stations are listening to week SSB DX signals.
They may get upset if you beacon often with high power when you
are near them.

It also is on the edge of FO-20 and FO-29 analog transponders,
which may give you up to another 12 passes a day. These passes
are longer than the pacsats!

Personally I do not feel good about beaconing blindly knowing about
these other satellites. With a omni directional uplink you do run a
chance of getting into the FO birds.
