PSAT – BRICsat:
> Do you still want folks to send them in or are you getting want you want
from the aprs.org site?
We need people (who have time) to concentrate on capturing data from
BRICsat on 437.975 9600 baud.
PSAT seems stable and telemetry from volunteers is coming into the
pcsat.aprs.org site OK. I am torn between using my UHF receiver for
montoring PSAT PSK31, or concentrating on BRICsat.. But we need to figure
out what is going on with BRICsat and try to rescue it. The PSK
transponder on BRICsat is newer and better.
I had been commanding PSK on PSAT to ON on every pass. But realized that
would be masking the weak PSK31 beacons from BRICsat. SO I have stopped
doing that. Now PSAT PSK is in auto – meaning it will come on if there is
a user, but otherwise it will only come on once every 5m with a beacon.
I will be going on travel for a week starting tonight, and so PSAT is on
its own. The BRICsat command team will be returning to the Academy on Wed
and may begin command efforts then. Hence the value of capturing any data
to point them in the right direction.
