Just got four packets from ANDE during the 08:13 UTC pass, 22nd Dec 2007,
over Wellington, New Zealand.

Sorry, I can't forward into the packet system myself. I downloaded
ASatLogger, but maybe some issues with Windows Vista, but could not get it
to play fair. Also, seems I need an ID to send into the server anyway.

Four packets from ANDE were:

ZL1AOX>APRS,ANDE-1* <UI>:Ping...# 39
ZL1TYF>APRS,ANDE-1* <UI R>:Hi from Wellington at RE78jt

One last being my own. The others, ZL1AOX, is Ian from Auckland, New
Zealand. About 550 Km to my north.

I was sending every 30 seconds, per Bob's OK in an earlier email.
Once I heard my packet, I turned my beacon off.

Few packets heard other than those that decoded as above.
No telemetry sadly Bob.

Hello all,

Saturday morning on a 30 degree pass I could hear four packets from Ande
within the predicted time frame (TLEs 1.8 days old!) in intervals of more
than one minute, but only one was decoded and passed to the APRS network 
(no telemetry sorry):

:BLN1ANDE :ANDE-1 only wakes up 1 of evry 15s for users. Pse conserve.
