Re: PCSAT-1 Mobile Communications Test



I fired up AGW-Tracker at home before going to bed last night but, 
unfortuntely, the PC froze at some point before PCSAT came over.  However, I 
was home at lunchtime today to let the dogs out and fired it up again, right 
in the middle of the 19:15 pass, and copied 1 POS report (AK4KO-2) and 2 
messages (N4BAF to J3ISS and W3ADO-15 to BLN0QSLs) at 19:20.

AGW-Tracker lets you copy & send D7(00)-style messages with your soundcard, 
as well as general APRS packets.
