A minor correction. I see that XW-1 is now officially Hope Oscar 68, HO-68.

I missed the transponder pass, but managed to catch the FM/BBS pass last
night. As others have said, it was a real kick. I had Wisp running, but
with TX off, and was able to see part of N8MH's connect efforts.
Fortunately the deviation of the packet downlink was not so high that it was
unbearable. Still, at some point I hope they will, at least for a test
period, separate out the voice and packet modes, as well as drop the PL if
possible on the packet.
A great new project. Congratulations to CAMSAT!
