Sunsat digital and voice enabled

Hi folks,

Sunsat's digital and voice modes will be active until June 25, 16:00 
UTC.  In its digital mode no bulletins or telemetry is transmitted.  
Digipeat via SUNSAT or APRSAT.  The uplink is 436.291 MHz (both 1k2 
and 9k6), the downlink 145.825 MHz (only 1k2 this time around).  The 
weekend schedule for the voice passes is as follows (times are UTC):

Australasia         24/6 08:18
Japan               24/6 09:38
South-Eastern Asia  24/6 11:22
Southern Africa     24/6 16:37
Europe              24/6 17:55
South America       24/6 23:10
North America       25/6 02:17

The flight software has changed quite a bit over the past two weeks, 
causing us to experience the teething problems of earlier this year 
all over again.  We are busy with other experiments at this stage and 
did not yet have the opportunity to verify that Sunsat switches back 
to digital after a voice pass.  Imagine trying to operate your rig 
when all knobs change function every few days.  ;-)

Kind regards,
Johann, ZR1CBC
