So, while digipeater is off, now is a good time to play with PSAT (NO84's)
PSK31 transponder which we try to always keep on.

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
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
