I've been struggling with packet satellite since day one and I have two
questions pertaining my Amateur Satellite Ground Station.
1. I'm new to MixW and very interested to know more about MixW
configuration to receive Packet Satellite telemetry specifics for OSCAR. I
have bought one complete package which included MixW software, RigExpert
plus and interface cable. Unfortunately, till today I can't even decode any
OSCAR telemetry either by using RigExpert or TNC.
2. My next question is how to operate my station as APRS? I'm be able to
receive somthing from ARISS but the signal is not digipeated. The data as
> HELLO FROM 9W2NRL
> RS0ISS-4/SGATE>CQ>UI,R,F0 (1199 baud):
> >ARISS - International Space Station (BBS/APRS on)
How do I verify the packet is really transmitted on air?
My station is equipped with X-Yagi Antenna, UHF Preamp, IC-921, FT-817 and
KAM-XL. In the software part, I used GSC and WxTrack for tracking and MixW.
A million thanks for your suggestion and guidance.
