PCSAT2 Mailbox Operation



Hello Group,

Today, 17 September 2005 at 1445 Hours UTC ISS passed over West Malaysia
with a maximum elevation of 39 degrees.

I attempted to connect to the PCSAT2 mailbox on 145.825 +/- TX and 435.275
+/- RX using 1200 baud.  Also successfully sent a message and receive the
message list.

Now, am wondering if it is possible to access the mailbox at 9600 baud?
Equipment used was Yaesu FT-847, 10 Element Yagi for 2M, 11 Element Quad for
70 CM, both vertically polarized, AGWPE and UISS software.

Below is the session dump.

P.S. There is really a lot of stuff to try on PCSAT2, from digipeating,
downloading of 9k6 telemetry and so on.  It would be good if I can have 2
UHF antennas, then I can get the 9k6 telemetry while working the mailbox...
Hope to do something for this in the near future.
