P PcSats hemsida finns det att lsa fljande:
END OF MISSION: PCsat was in full sun 10-20 April 2003 and continued to be power positive until 26 April. At that point it was back into heavy eclipses and the batteries are so weak that even in the sun, they can barely support a single packet. I m declaring PCsat mission as complete. It operated reliably for 19 months and supported over 2000 users worldwide. We were seeing typically 50 users in each 8 hour period on pcsat.aprs.org. So she was well used up until the end. We will leave her ON for continued experimentation, but the only packets you can get through PCsat now are very short ones.
Och Bob tipsar om hur man skapar sm paket att testa med:
– Mic-E formatted Packets (position, Course, SPeed and ICON)(only 9 bytes in the payload)
– Kenwood D7 and D700 s use the Mic-E format (Turn off any status text)
– Transmit VIA XBAUD and your 1 second 1200 baud packet will be digipeated back down at 9600 baud
– Set your radio to crossband and TX at 9600 baud on the UHF input.
