I fired up AGW-Tracker at home before going to bed last night but,
unfortuntely, the PC froze at some point before PCSAT came over. However, I
was home at lunchtime today to let the dogs out and fired it up again, right
in the middle of the 19:15 pass, and copied 1 POS report (AK4KO-2) and 2
messages (N4BAF to J3ISS and W3ADO-15 to BLN0QSLs) at 19:20.
AGW-Tracker lets you copy & send D7(00)-style messages with your soundcard,
as well as general APRS packets.
