PCsat doing fine



PCsat is back to Eclipses but is holding fine and supporting about 50
users per 8 hour evening period (see pcsat.aprs.org).  I just cut the TXD
in half from 30 to 15 and it seems  to work fine for my receive set up,
saving about 10% of transmit power.

If anyone notices any problems let me know.  Mid northern latitudes are
seeing evening prime-time passes:
