Re: PK-96 and Pacsat Reception



Hi Doug

http://www.ne.jp/asahi/hamradio/je9pel got me going in five minutes from a
new install, with zero previous knowledge of working the PACSATs.

As Laura mentioned, the AMSAT Digital Satellite Guide is excellent reading
material, although my May 2000 copy doesn't have the PACSAT callsigns, which
_are_ in the above website.

Hope this helps...
