Re: NO-44 (PCSAT) over West Malaysia



Hi,

successful "digi repeating" via PCSAT-1 today, through my APRS Gate
(SV1BSX-14)
between TA2MZN - PCSAT-1 and local wireless APRS network here,
using as "Unproto address" SGATE,RELAY.

 The effective "Digi path" of TA2MZN was W3ADO-1.

 NO-44 passed from North to SE with max. Elevation 22.
S9 max. signal.
RX-TX Antenna:  4El. Yagi (Vertical pol.)

FB !!!
