[amsat-bb] PSAT paths

Actually, the best path should be VIA ARISS.  There is no need for SGATE,
since all APRS IGates automatically send everything they hear to the
internet.  And if you set VIA PSAT as the path, then you just have to
change it again for ISS.

So just use via ARISS and both PSAT and/or ISS will digipeat it.

PSAT and all other APRS satellite also support the generic space alias of
APRSAT, but since the ISS doesn't support that path, then the most generic
path is VIA ARISS which will work with all of them.

Hope that helps.

I am using   to: "APRS"  but "CQ" should be just as good.
For the via:  PSAT,ARISS,SGATE .

ARISS is for the double hop if the ISS is in range, and SGATE to put a
digi'd  packets on the internet sites.

Just checking here, I'm using UISS as software. I've >got "CQ" in the
"To:" box and "PSAT" in the "Via:" box. That should work, yes? If not,
what are other folks using?
