Re: Help digipeat.

The callsign to digipeat APRS beacons on the birds
is as follows:

AO-16   PACSAT-1

LO-19   LUSAT-1

IO-26   ITMSAT-1

I should be digipeating via AO-16 tomorrow from an
APRS dead zone in the Southeast headed back to
Huntsville on Friday using the callsign N8DEU, then
when the birds disappear for the morning, I will use
the regular APRS 2M network when I get in range of
a digipeater near Birmingham, Alabama.  My travel
will start somewhere between 1600z -1750z which
will give me at least 1 or 2 passes to utilize.

>From the APRS dead zone the only link on 2M will
be via one of the Pacsats since there are no
digipeaters in the initial areas I will be traveling.  If
all goes well, I will access AO-16 with no trouble as
I did earlier today from the mobile station.

When my beacon hits the bird I can be found at:

http://www.aprs.net:8000/n8deu when accessing via
the digital birds or http://www.aprs.net:8000/n8deu-12
when accessing APRS via the terrestrial 2M link.

If time permits I will also try to access LO-19 and
IO-26, but that requires pulling out my laptop and
reprogramming the UNPROTO path until the digital
support a generic alias of RELAY.  Thus, making it
easier for the remote travelers to access the 3 digital
Pacsat's a little easier.

If there are no technical problems from the mobile, I
will have a signal on the Uplink tomorrow around
1600z using a $2 modification to my MFJ1270 TNC.
