[amsat-bb] PSAT digipeater is ON

Heard the PSAT APRS beacon, KB2M, N3FCX, K0KOC, and an acknowledgement
of my own position on the 1737Z pass from hear in Washington, DC with
my Kenwood TH-D7A(G) and an Arrow antenna. Didn't get any decodes
below 25 degrees or so with just the HT. I guess that's to be expected
with the lower transmit power.

It doesn't look like any iGates picked the activity up on this pass.
