Now that ANDE has deployed and we have been away from family for
too long. We are declaring ANDE a success even though we have a
few more steps to complete in the checkout process. But due to
the holidays, we are going to secure testing for a few days and
open them up to limited USER access:
LIMITED USER digipeating is authorized:
1) ATTENDED operations ONLY
2) Low Dutycyle only. Say once per minute per station
3) NO DIGIPEATING VIA RAFT AT NIGHT
4) Use only the path UNPROTO APRS VIA ANDE-1 or VIA RAFT
5) DIGIpeating via any other aliases on 145.825 not authorized
*) UNATTENDED BEACONS ARE NOT AUTHORIZED.
If you cannot hear these sateliltes PLEASE do not transmit. You
are only adding QRM and destroying others ability to use them.
Beam antennas appear to be required. Please work on your
receive capablity and measure your success by how many packets
you can RECEIVE, not by how many times you can hit the bird.
