Re: PCSAT2 APRS Success!

QSL...it is cloudy and overcast here 20 miles north of Boston...working
conditions were 7w to a 1/4 wave whip on a metal sheet on the roof...

There are probably not many satgates up as I didn't see my packet on Findu,
and I can see my PCR-1000 has a long way to go before it's going to hear
much at 435.

Thanks for the report!

Copied WA1KAT via PCSAT2 on the 435.275 downlink.  This was using my
TH-D7 and arrow handheld antenna.

To top it off, it is a beautiful clear night here.  ISS was visible
and bright for the majority of the pass.
