Re: PANsat



Thanks for setting me straight Mike. I should have looked before reacting. I
visited the PANSAT site and there is all the information required to listen
for the satellite, it's not all very obvious, but it looks like it's all
there.  I tried to access the links with the various papers describing the
satellite in detail, but all of them came up dead. It appears they are
collecting telemetry from the satellite.  I apologize to anyone who may have
taken offense to my last post.
