Hi all,
We have almost reached 20 stations already picked up by Duchifat1 that are
displayed on the world map at our web site.

You are all invited to experiment sending a compressed APRS packet with
your location and registration code to the satellite.

These packets can be generated either with a small software converter from
LAT/LON ("APRS Encoder") at our web site or with a Byonics TinyTrak4 for
mobile use or base station.

When using the "APRS Encoder" you also need a conventional TNC, either
external or software to convert the 14 characters long text string to
1200bd AFSK audio for transmission.

The satellite stores the packets and we get to download them from the
satellite at least 3 times a week.  The new stations are then added to the
map automatically.

More information and operational tips are in the downloadable files at the
web site.

Good luck & 73!
