Id only try via ISS first (it has 10 times more power).

Also, do not use generic ARISS,ARISS double hop, since if they both hear
it (likely) then they will both TX at the same time and not hear the other


BUT, I have a strong suspicion that PSAT does not digi via PSAT!  (ARGH!)
Apparently the TinyTrack-4 of which PSAT is built, has a separate command
MYDIGI and it defaults to OFF!
We may have missed that in programming it.  The few times I tried "VIA
PSAT" I was unsuccessful, but then I have so many other commands to send,
that I have not dwelled on it.

If anyone can confirm that they can digi via the PSAT call itself, let us

If it does not work, then try VIA RS0ISS,APRSAT and it should recognize
the APRSAT alias.

There was a NO-84 / ISS double hop opportunity this evening between

I was able to send packets both directions, but did not see a double hop.
Both spacecraft were in view of each other as well as an i-Gate.

There is always next time.
