SUNSAT 1st pass Sat Eve



First mode-B packet Pass Sat Evening, about 1800 EDT east coast.

Following MSGS captured:

KB2WQM: PACGATE is up
KC2GMM: Working Car fire,Rt287s, Hanover,NJ

Other packets NOT caputed on the HT (It does not recognize the TLE format:

SUNSAT>BEACON T#nnn,121,122,123,144,255,1001010
SUNSAT>BEACON T#n+1,121,124,132,155,244,1101001
etc...  every 10 secs throughout the pass

This time I was using an old THD7 at 1200 baud on the STOCK HT whip in one
hand to validate the 1200 baud uplink, and using a THD7(g) in the other to
make sure I heard everything.  It was using a 19" whip which is probably
not need on the very strong downlink.

With the UPLINK, I got in plenty of times, didnt want to make a nuisance
of myself.  On the downlink, I think I captured almost all packets.

Since I was too stupid to have entered a POSIT into my  UPLINK HT, you
will not see me on the FINDU.COM or www.aprs.net sites.  But you should
find these, IF the SATGATE worked...
