What is the correct path setting for PCSat on the D700A,would it contain a wide2-2? would it be PCSAT,W3ADO-1,WIDE2-2.

PCSAT path

It depends on what the state of PCSAT is, when PCSAT is in full sun for the entire orbit then the path would be PCSAT,SGATE but when it is going through eclipses, then W3ADO-1,SGATE would be necessary.

PCSAT

Hi, can you tell me if PCSAT is still active on 145.827 1200baud ? From some days I'm trying to digipeat and no luck, no response from PCSAT. Maybe is not operational during eclipses ? (Because all this days I have passes during eclipses of it's orbit.) Thanks a lot.

Only in full sun

PCSAT is only fully operational when the orbit is in full sun. It does operate occassionally near the end of a long sun pass but only in its default state.

OK

Thanks. I use APRS via W3ADO-1. It is OK ?

Re:OK

That will work when PCSAT is in default mode. You should use PCSAT when it is restored and in full sun.
