THanks.  But the PBBS on PCsat is not authorized for anyone to use.  It is
extermely wastefull of precious battery power and should not be used by
anyone for any purpose.  Not even to connect to it.  THis causes retries
which run the batteries down and will ruin the spacecraft.

The PBBS is available for very specific world travelers who need access in
remote parts of the world.  Such users reserve access in advance of their
special travels.

All hams are welcome to use the PCsat digipeater in accordance with the
user service agreement posted on: http://www.ew.usna.edu/pcsat

PCsat is a student experiment with no CPU controls onboard and was not
made of space rated parts.  We do not expect it to last very long, so we
hope that all users will help us to go easy on it and lets see how long we
can make it last.

Thanks
Bob
