Re: [OZAPRS] PCsat Ops, thanks etc

Here is an answer to you VK question..Norm,

Does any VK station actually forward to the internet? I'll remove it 'till I
find out!

This is a copy of a previous post by Richard.

Alan, VK8ZAB has agreed to run his station as a full-time downlink
SGATE for PCSat.

This will allow travellers in outback Northern Australia to have
reliable access to PCSat and APRS up to 6 times a day. As Alan's SGATE
is also an IGate this means travellers will be able to send messages
and short emails via PCSat onto the internet.

Currently VK8ZAB is running as a downlink from PCSat only. In the
future uplink operations may be configured.

Thank you to Alan VK8ZAB for his enthusiasm and willingness to provide
this service to all Amateurs.

If there are any amateur stations in the Perth / Southern WA area that
would like to assist the Australian APRS network by running a full time
SGATE/IGate please contact me.
