I think it is not just the west coast Bob...

The last opportunity I had to listen (while ISS was in APRS mode), it seems
like I only heard a few packets downlink, but they weren't appearing
in the APRS-IS. I only copied one or two beacons, neither was mine.
I couldn't tell if it was my station, the ISS digi, or just that the
Igates of the southeast US were all asleep...  Checking the map tonite tho,
I see that the most recent activity was a few days back.

I'm afraid that with the irregularity of the schedule, some are finding
it difficult to dedicate the resources to that frequency 24x7 ...
I hope to have mine back on the air soon, I hope there will be enough
in the schedule to keep it on freq.
