PSAT seems alive and well, supporting both APRS digipeating on 145.825 and
PSK-31 on 435.350 FM downlink (28 Mhz uplink).
I love a satellite that needs no care most of the time (unless some of our
other ground stations are doing it and I’m clueless as usual.)
Anyway, I just checked the downlink page http://pcsat.findu.com and see a
handful of users over the last two weeks since I last checked. Orbit clock
“s#058612” shows 586 orbits and 12 minutes since last reset, and that is
about 40 days. I do notice that most telemetry is coming down in the dark
(S# sun vectors mostly 0000’s) so it is in the dark over the northern
hempiphere these days. But seems to be holding up.
