This is the tough part. QSOs can be completed via digipeating through the satellite, but the BBS is non-operative.
If only 'twere true!
Unfortunately, PacSat too has gone silent.
I was collecting regular telemetry from her strong, reliable signal thru
the 2330 pass on May 24 - since then, nothing.
I do, however, have a nearly complete collection of that telemetry for
the past several years, but have not yet dived into it to look for any
sign of developing problems.
