Similar here. On the 1240z pass we saw no othes. On the 1410z
pass, we only saw two other stations, KB1GVR, and N4ZQ besides
my two stations, WB4APR and W3ADO. But as I spent the next few
minutes explaining to the students that it was working hours
and probably few players, we heard more packets and noticed that
PCSAT came into view. We saw the above plus VE3FFR, AK4KO and
WA4AEJ. Sorry, we went to eat lunch and missed the 1550z pass.
We even logged onto PCSAT (it uses the default W3ADO-1 call
sign) and configured it for full ops, and then to the end of the
pass, it gave excellent signals.
Both ANDE and W3ADO (PCSAT) use the default path for the APRS
satellites which is VIA ARISS. This is the same as that used on
the ISS so that users do not have to switch UNPROTO settings
We will try again on Thrusday during the 8AM to Noon EDT passes.
