PCSAT OPS Normal!



Steve Diggs reports that PCsat's telemetry counter is showing countS OVER
800 meaning it has been alive for more that 12+ hours without a reset.

Thus she's working round-the clock.  Enjoy!

PCSAT was found in low power mode at the beginning of this CONUS pass;
the last recorded telemetry counter was <<893>>. Yes, 893.

Here is a telem sniplet:

2:Fm W3ADO-1 To BEACON Via SGATE <UI pid=F0 Len=42 >[10:40:31]
T#888,157,159,080,208,213,00111110,0011,1

If I understand this correctly, PCSAT is at the moment in positive power
budget for nearly 10 orbits. Battery voltage was steady at 157,159.
Battery temp was at a balmy 24.7. (~76F)

Regards,
Steve Diggs, W4EPI
