Nothing has changed really. PCSAT (W3ADO-1) is operational on
all passes when it is in the mid-day sun. That means if there
are any passes within a few hours of your local noon, then it is
probably useable for a few packets. You can see its downlink on
the http://pcsat.aprs.org web page at any time.
Checking there, I see many many users and packets over the last
Enjoy!. Also ANDE-1 is on the same frequency and should also be
available on 145.825 MHz, though weaker.
