Probably the closest thing to a status report on the health
of NO-84 is available from Mike DK3WN:
DK3WN is one of the command stations for NO-84, and he is
able to switch on the APRS digipeater when he feels the
satellite can handle it. His last blog entry related to
that satellite was from last week, where he commented that
"digipeater should remain off". Along with his web site,
DK3WN is also on Twitter as @DK3WN where he also posts
information related to NO-84. If you're not on Twitter, you
can read his tweets in a browser at:
In terms of APRS digipeaters operating on 145.825 MHz,
NO-84 is off, ISS is down, and from an earlier -BB post
it looks like QIKCOM-1 (another satellite with an APRS
transponder on 145.825 MHz):
has been delayed in its deployment from the ISS. We'll
have to be patient...
