> Thanks for that info, Roy. Perhaps what I have heard in the past was some sort of telemetry coming from NO-84. Is it also sending a data beacon?
> check out:

If the PSAT packets are shown as "PSAT-1]APOFF", then all it sends out are
beacons (with embedded telemetry info, more info on Bob's website, aprs.org

If the packets are shown as "PSAT]APRSON", then it will send beacons, and
occasional friendly messages, as well as digipeat (use "ARISS" as path).
If you send a message directly to "PSAT" (while it is on), then it will not
digipeat it, and instead will eventually respond with some information
about the next AOS (I think, it's been a while).

It's really a neat satellite.
