Dunno, maybe the bird is getting hammered less over 6-land than over
central US.  Or maybe it's the same user logging into the mailbox and
sucking up bandwidth on every pass I check.  All I know is PCSAT was
almost easier than hitting the local DX cluster, but ISS was impossible
(and I tried almost every pass while travelling between eastern NE and
Colorado).  I would suggest that to ask ISS to serve as both a PMS and
a UI digi is too much to ask.
