Now that FalconSat-3 has been open for amateur use over the past
couple of weeks, there have been reports of activity from different
parts of the world - mailbox use, as well as the digipeater. Since
there have been QSOs made through the FalconSat-3 digipeater, it
would be nice to have this satellite added to Logbook of the World.
Since it appears ARRL defers to AMSAT when it comes to adding
satellites to LOTW, has AMSAT made a request to get FalconSat-3
added to LOTW? If not, what is holding up that request? If the
satellite's name is too long for the LOTW database, using FS-3 or
FS3 seems like a reasonable option for SAT_NAME in our ADIF files.
Thanks, and 73!
