Thanks Roger, but I'm not transmitting at present. I only have the
receive side set up. I thought I'd try to work the bugs out on that side
first. While I have operated voice on the LEO's and terrestrial packet
before APRS, I'm completely new to digital on sats or the ISS so I don't
want to to TX until I know exactly what I'm doing. I'd hate to cause
inteference to anyone else while experimenting. I just don't understand
why I have completely stopped even hearing packets, much less decoding
them. My radio setup seems to be fine, I have no problems copying
repeaters. There is not much local terrestrial packet activity I can
find out here where I live in the "boonies" to experiment with either.
I'll keep at it though, everyone has given me a lot of help and ideas.
on things to check.
Tnx and 73,
