Looks like we get one more shot...

Lets everyone that is interested to park their ground station pointing at AOS for RAFT and recording packets.  This is a great opportunity to see the heat up of an AMSAT as it re-enters.

Do NOT bother with automatic tracking, since arrival will be much earlier than any keps you can get..

If you can APRS-IGate the packets then that is even better, sinec we can all see the telemetry then in real time.
