Just had an overhead descending pass in New England and saw PSAT was
being pounded by several unattended beacons set for every couple of
seconds. One was a 3 and the other a zero. ISS was also in their unproto
Luckily the SGATEs seem to be down so there is no positive reinforcement
for the activity.
I can get acks over Canada and over the Atlantic with 10 watts to a
vertical but I don't seem to decode noisy signals as well as the old
days of ISS Ericksson and PCSAT.
I think I'm done for a while until the earth based ops get their
stations in order.
Nice to have the APRS / UNPROTO activity though!
