PCSAT-1 (NO-44) Special Event Continues



PCSAT-1 remains fully operational as a digipeater on 145.825 up
and down using the aliases of PCSAT-1, ARISS, RELAY, WIDE and
WIDEn-N and TRACEn-N.  Users are welcome to use it and we are
seeing about 80 people a day.

PCSAT-1 was resetting to W3ADO-1 a few times (the bad default
power negative condition), but as long as the SIDE-B system does
not reset at the same time, then PCSAT-1 is recoverable and
useable.  But as long as people do not use the W3ADO-1 path, but
use the other ones above instead, then we should be able to keep
PCSAT-1 alive for a few more weeks.
