While you are out doors this weekend and next playing radio, don't forget
that you can simply QSY your APRS mobile or handheld (or any packet
station) to 145.825 during midday and digipeat via PCSAT.  You'll get
three passes daily between about 10 AM to about 2:30 PM local time
northern hemisphere.  (See southern times below).

Since PCsat is still holding all its config and doing well, you can
digipeat through it using  any of the normal PCSAT aliases:

RELAY
WIDE   <== note the compatibiliity with terrestrial settings!
ARISS
W3ADO-1

And all packets should come back down with the PCSAT-1 callsign
substituted.  If PCSAT does a reset, then the only digipeater callsign
that will work is W3ADO-1...

Remember, NO CONNECTS and NO BBS or you will kill it...
