Re: Joint ISS/PCsat test finale sked (fwd)



This announcement about the final 2 days of the joint ISS/PCsat test was
blocked from both the AMSAT and SAREX lists because it was sent to both.
Two excellent passes for the westeren USA were lost, and anyone who
needed this information on Friday before the start of the weekend may have
missed it:

This message is not being sent to the SAREX list because Paul Williamson
now arbitrarily forbids cross posting.
