[sarex] 9600 baud experiment

I'm guessing that the 9600 baud experiment is now over as the 1200 baud
dual-hop and new/different cross-band repeater experiments are coming up
next. Well, I gotta say, "It was a lot of fun for me!" Some of us got
on early, and stayed on throughout the experiment... but I did notice
that new people were getting on 9600 each day as the experiment wore on.
Special thanks to David, G8OQW, for letting us know that the ISS
started off on the wrong frequency (145.800 simplex, instead of
145.825). Below is a summary of the activity that I tried to keep tabs
on... certainly _NOT_ guaranteed to be accurate, or complete (but I do
have logs of the stations copied from my QTH, if anyone wants to see a
packet that I received).
Call signs below copied from my QTH (most were also shown on ariss.net):
W4SV, KB1GVR( and -9), W3ADO-15, N2NRJ, K4IPH-7, KB2M-1, K7MT-1 (and
-14), W5RKN, XE2MZS, K5VAS, KD8ATF, N7RYW, KB0OWD, N5VHO-7, W8KHP-6,
AJ5C-3, N5NBJ-3, AB5JO, N3QL, KC8RWD-14, WD4ITE, NR3U-8, KC9XG-5 (and
-4), KB1PVH-9, WA4SCA-2, AB0XK-5, AB8DD, KJ4EWA-3, AB3CE, N5UXT, KI4NOD,
KD8CAO, VE2KDK-7, W7KKE, N7YET-14, KN4F, KB8ZGL-12, K4O0D-7 (two digits
[4/0] must be misprinted packet), N6NR, K8VOR, W7JPI, N5ZNL, CO2LL
Call signs below active on ariss.net (that I did not copy at my QTH):
2E0EXL, EA1BAF, DD8HB, G8OQW, JA0CAW, JA6PL, JA5BLZ, JH4BTI, JE9PEL,
CT2IWW, EB1DWF (and -5), OE5RPP, PD0RKC, KP4BJD, K6BIR-4, JA1AZR, EA7AHA
(and -9), DO8AC, G4DCQ-8, ON3LVC, DF9EY, DO1CAS-1, DJ3OC, US8IPB,
CE3SNA-7, G1OCN, ON6MU, DL8DR, IN3VHG, DL5NBR-4, KF0G-9, AB7ZX-2,
K7OFT-10, TEST (position report showed a Canadian station)
A few other stations show on ariss.net with messages to RS0ISS-5 or -11,
or ISS, ISS-5, ISS-10. Not sure if these were sent via 9600 baud radio
or via Internet on ariss.net ... but dates are during 9600 test period.
The stations that I noticed are: LW4DEM, 9W2KEY-3, E20YJC, K5NAA,
W8UFX, EA2CNC, but could also be more than these.
Again, I had a blast with this new mode... and I hope that the ARISS
Team will make it available again to us in the future. It has been a
long time since I've used 9600 baud, and it took awhile to make it work
correctly again, but it was worth the trouble! I don't have any 1296
capabilities, but I will try to participate in the other activities as
my schedule allows.
Also, another special thanks to Steve, K4HG, for providing ariss.net to
us... what a great website!
Happy Holidays to all...
