We need  high power 10 meter CW or PSK stations to test
The PCSAT2 10m ==> 2m  transponder asap.

PCSAT2 mission ends on 30 August (just 8 days away)  and
To date, no one has reported using the 10m uplink to
435 MHz  downlink transponder.  We know the transponder 
Is quite deaf, but to  date, for the last several months
We have not had any reports of anyone  making the transponder
Or even trying. 

Hello Bob.
For the record:  I had a successful PSK31 QSO via PCSAT2 with Peter  G3PLX 
shortly before the sensitivity dropped.
At that time 100W to a dipole was QRO.   2 days later while  testing Peter's 
'doppler tracking' version of the PSK31 software, the  sensitivity dropped by 
at least 15dB.
