Hi All,

I would actually suggest that David Carr creates a PhoneSat entry on
oscar.dcarr.org and we post the status there. That way we will not clutter
the BB with posts.
Would that be sufficient for the purpose of tracking who received it?

I have heard the Phonesats already quite often, and for instance Mike DK3WN
does not post every success, but checking his website reveals he receives
it almost every orbit when possible. I'm sure there is plenty of people


Also note that I'm uploading my packets to the PhoneSat website, but the
parser does not eat up my AX.25 output nor KISS. I also paste an entire
pass in the TLM box, as I'm sure no-one will upload each individual packet
on its own. I hope that the processing backend is smart enough.
