Re: ISS Packet Question



I agree with Bob.

We have seen it on MIR when the PMS was active.

We got it to a point where we were taking turns.

The problem is one will usually retry out once a connection is established.
No data moves.. we called it RR city.
Nobody got anything done at times.
The secret was to do it at night when most were asleep. For me, it was easy
on the west coast because I usually saw MIR or ISS before most others.

UI digipeating is the only really workable way of passing info or traffic.
APRS Takes say 1 line of info and makes into something an APRS user can see
or relate to.

73, and good luck to all!

And users should not have any great expectations here.  If it is enabled,
with the current congestion on the uplink, anyone that connects with less
than 3,000W ERP should not expect a reliable enough connection to be able
to even get a listing...  Same goes for Keyboard mode.   Bob
