Take a break from the congestion.... come to the wide open multi-user
wideband transponder on PSAT-1.  Downlink is good on a handheld arrow on
435.350 MHz FM.  It should be able to support dozens of simultaneous full
duplex QSO's in the PSK31 waterfall.

Just pick an empty spot and key your TX solid for the full 8 minutes of the
pass on your 10 meter PSK31 uplink 28.121 MHz..

To run fullduplex, just run two copies of your favorite PSK31 software.  One
receiving the FM downlink and the other transmitting on the SSB uplink. Even
better is to run Andy K0SM's TX-only uplink client that pre-adjusts for
Doppler so everyone can decode you with no adjustments.


Text with everyone all at once.
