Just had an overhead descending pass in New England and saw PSAT was 
being pounded by several unattended beacons set for every couple of 
seconds. One was a 3 and the other a zero. ISS was also in their unproto 

Luckily the SGATEs seem to be down so there is no positive reinforcement 
for the activity.

I can get acks over Canada and over the Atlantic with 10 watts to a 
vertical but I don't seem to decode noisy signals as well as the old 
days of ISS Ericksson and  PCSAT.

I think I'm done for a while until the earth based ops get their 
stations in order.

Nice to have the APRS / UNPROTO activity though!
