My preference for APRS terminal programs is Lynn Deffenbaugh's APRSIS/32
(http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/). Haven't used Packet by itself
(non-APRS) in probably a decade...
Note the settings recommended for satellite operation, as different from
terrestrial APRS. http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:satelliteops
