Re: 1k2 APRS via Satellite successful

Great to hear your success!! Motivates me to play with my projects! I
have a nice 9600 baud demo with DRAWS using P2P paclink-unix that I'll
be showing at Summer Gathering next weekend.

Hi everyone. Just wanted to share that I was able to get digipeated
this morning via satellite "AISAT-1" as it passed over the U.S. East

With an FT-857d connected to the DRAWS & up/down freqs being
controlled via CAT from GPredict, Direwolf served as the packet
modem. The "beacon" command that is part of ax25-tools allows you to
send payload text of your choice from the Pi. I just have a number of
scripts as clickable icons containing the strings I want as properly
formatted APRS "text", "position", & "message" type packets.

Of course the UISS program on Windows is more capable, but sometimes
we have to make compromises or do things differently on the Pi.

Here is a tweet with screen shots:
