It looks like we have a chance to do double-hop packet through
the ISS and NO-84, around 2209 UTC. ISS is passing to my
west, and NO-84 is to the southeast. Using SatPC32, it looks
like the two should see each other in orbit. I'm going to give
this a try, sending my packets first through ISS using its
RS0ISS call, as it will be higher and easier to get into. I'm
hoping that something makes it to - and through - NO-84.
Even though I had tweeted that I would use ARISS for the
second part of my path, I'll go with APRSAT instead. I can
change it on the fly, if needed.

I'll watch the usual web sites, to see what makes it through each
digipeater. Please let me know if you see WD9EWK-9 make it
through both.
