PCsat has been back to normal ops since 5 April.

I don't normally put PCsat announcements on SAREX, because it is for
manned  space, however, since the PCsat digipeater is identical to the ISS
packet digipeater, and they even use the identical digipeater ALIAS of
"ARISS", you can think of them as a dual-satellite constellation with
one mission.

So a SAREX user can operate PCsat or ISS digipeater with NO CHANGES in
TNC configuration other than to QSY between passes.  THis is because PCsat
uses the digipeater ALIAS of "ARISS" just like the RS0ISS digipeater does,
so in fact, PCsat and RS0ISS are doing the same mission.

Use 145.800 and 145.990 and DIGIPEAT via ARISS for ISS
Use 145.830 and 145.830 and DIGIPEAT via ARISS for PCsat

PCsat is in very good sun this weeek and even has its GPS on over the USA,
so you can see it move...
