Great!  Thanks doug.  Sorry for the hassle, I probably sent my email
prematurely, because after I sent it, I zoomed in on APRS.FI and that's when
I not only saw your home station's info with your real email address but
also that you were at that instant mobile in your -9.  

Duh..., so I sent you an APRS message from my radio to your mobile, but
apparently just missed you, because I could see that you were no longer in
your car at that point.  Having just missed  you a few minutes.

Glad to see APRS texting worked so well!

Today's efforts to recover PCSAT were hampered a little by UO11 which has
also happened to come back alive..  I got connected, and got the first
commands in, but it only held up about 11 minutes total before it died
again.  I'll try again on Thursday Morning.
