ISS/PCsat joint windows



We saw ISS on 145.825 for joint ops with PCsat for a few hour
this afternoon, but as of this writing, she is back on ISS freq.

Gil Carman at JSC computed times when PCsat and ISS are in range.  His
predictions INCLUDE the 3 planned ISS maneuvers over the next 2 weeks.
If you have a pass of EITHER spacecraft during these windows, you have a
chance at witnessing a double hop path.  Gil notes that Saturday around
19:50 UTC looks like a good chance for a "double hop" link over the U.S.

Here is about 1/3rd of his list.  I removed all times when the range was
greater than 2000 km between them.  For the full original list, see my
ISS-FAQ web page:  http://www.ew.usna.edu/~bruninga/iss-faq.html
