9600 baud experiment



Hi all,

I'm guessing that the 9600 baud experiment is now over as the 1200 baud 
dual-hop and new/different cross-band repeater experiments are coming up 
next.  Well, I gotta say, "It was a lot of fun for me!"  Some of us got 
on early, and stayed on throughout the experiment... but I did notice 
that new people were getting on 9600 each day as the experiment wore on. 
  Special thanks to David, G8OQW, for letting us know that the ISS 
started off on the wrong frequency (145.800 simplex, instead of 
145.825). Below is a summary of the activity that I tried to keep tabs 
on... certainly _NOT_ guaranteed to be accurate, or complete (but I do 
have logs of the stations copied from my QTH, if anyone wants to see a 
packet that I received).

Call signs below copied from my QTH (most were also shown on ariss.net):

W4SV, KB1GVR( and -9), W3ADO-15, N2NRJ, K4IPH-7, KB2M-1, K7MT-1 (and 
-14), W5RKN, XE2MZS, K5VAS, KD8ATF, N7RYW, KB0OWD, N5VHO-7, W8KHP-6, 
AJ5C-3, N5NBJ-3, AB5JO, N3QL, KC8RWD-14, WD4ITE, NR3U-8, KC9XG-5 (and 
-4), KB1PVH-9, WA4SCA-2, AB0XK-5, AB8DD, KJ4EWA-3, AB3CE, N5UXT, KI4NOD, 
KD8CAO, VE2KDK-7, W7KKE, N7YET-14, KN4F, KB8ZGL-12, K4O0D-7 (two digits 
[4/0] must be misprinted packet), N6NR, K8VOR, W7JPI, N5ZNL, CO2LL

Call signs below active on ariss.net (that I did not copy at my QTH):

2E0EXL, EA1BAF, DD8HB, G8OQW, JA0CAW, JA6PL, JA5BLZ, JH4BTI, JE9PEL, 
CT2IWW, EB1DWF (and -5), OE5RPP, PD0RKC, KP4BJD, K6BIR-4, JA1AZR, EA7AHA 
(and -9), DO8AC, G4DCQ-8, ON3LVC, DF9EY, DO1CAS-1, DJ3OC, US8IPB, 
CE3SNA-7, G1OCN, ON6MU, DL8DR, IN3VHG, DL5NBR-4, KF0G-9, AB7ZX-2, 
K7OFT-10, TEST (position report showed a Canadian station)

A few other stations show on ariss.net with messages to RS0ISS-5 or -11, 
or ISS, ISS-5, ISS-10.  Not sure if these were sent via 9600 baud radio 
or via Internet on ariss.net ... but dates are during 9600 test period. 
  The stations that I noticed are: LW4DEM, 9W2KEY-3, E20YJC, K5NAA, 
W8UFX, EA2CNC, but could also be more than these.

Again, I had a blast with this new mode... and I hope that the ARISS 
Team will make it available again to us in the future.  It has been a 
long time since I've used 9600 baud, and it took awhile to make it work 
correctly again, but it was worth the trouble!  I don't have any 1296 
capabilities, but I will try to participate in the other activities as 
my schedule allows.

Also, another special thanks to Steve, K4HG, for providing ariss.net to 
us... what a great website!

Happy Holidays to all...

73,
