Grateful thanks.

My grateful thanks to everyone who took the trouble to reply to my queries about AO-16.

Of course !! ... I'd forgotten for a moment that AO-16 is now an FM single-user satellite and therefore pretty useless for low power operation due to the alligators ... so I would have been totally wiped out anyway if I 'd have tried to use APRS or CW.

I'm still very grateful for the feedback though ... thank you all.

I was trying to find a "satellite" use for an IC-E91 D-Star handheld where there are no D-Star repeaters and I'm totally blocked for the ISS (1200bps packet and APRS) and when ICOM say "low speed data" on the E-91 they probably mean something like about 200 bps a day !!... (???) ...into the 'data' socket.

I SERIOUSLY !!!! doubt it's 9600bps capable ???. 

I am in range of GO-32 but don't have a 9600bps capable radio. 
I have MixW to generate 9600 but I believe one needs to "go in" at the varactor modulator on the transmitter and that would require  micro-surgery on an IC-E91 ... even if a circuit diagram was available - which it isn't ...

... but ... there's always stamp collecting !!.

Thanks again, one and all.
