PB and PG v.1.5 - programs for communicating with Microsat satellites

I have uploaded version 1.5 of PB and PG for Linux to Metalab.unc.edu. The
name is pbpg-1.5.tar.gz. I have placed the file and the accompanying
lsm-file in /incoming/Linux. The target directory is /pub/linux/apps/ham.
The file may also be downloaded from 

The updated documentation is found in the file named README.

This is a patch release:

-	Sometimes PB would send requests for directory fills when it was not

	needed. This has been fixed. It was due to erroneous handling of
	fragmented broadcast directory entries.

The lsm reads as follows:
