What I use is, 145.85 for the uplink (only use 145.93 with mice)
u aprs via 4xtech
hbaud 9600 (I guess your 8600 was a typo)
Then you should just be able to send anything like normal
I do alot of messages like:
:CQ :Hello on go32
I'm using my d700 in packet mode with aprs software
Also, can you hear go-32 at all? it transmits about every other second
with it's bbs stuff, so it should be a constant stream of stuff even
if no one is transmitting to it. Pretty much like the ao-51 downlink
