Listening to the WebSDR link all morning. Very interesting to hear so many
QSO?s, and in a variety of languages.

I?m curious if DXCC will be a possibility using only this satellite? Looks
like its footprint covers enough countries to qualify, but I?m not sure how
many of those have amateur allocations that will allow operation on the
bird. I?m sure it won?t be long until operators are ?working the edges? of
the footprint, and also mounting DX-expeditions to areas with few operators.

Exciting stuff. I?d love to see a similar bird launched in this hemisphere.
Opens up so many possibilities. Congratulations to all involved. One hundred
amateur satellites, quite an achievement. And fitting that it should occur
during the 50th anniversary of AMSAT.

Yes, but many countries will not have ham satellite operators.

Some intelligent informed QSOs on Es'Hail 2, makes a change from 80m.

Agreed. I'd love to see something like this in the Western Hemisphere. With
the higher frequencies,higher bandwidth and a stationary object where we
could be experimenting with DATV, and various digital and analog modes.

If we were really smart about it we could have cameras, microprocessors and
sensors, think a stack of Pi's in space where time could be reserved to
upload code and run experiments or educational sessions with schools. I
don't find chasing a bird through the sky to make a few contacts and give
my grid anywhere near as exciting as what could be done with a geo or even
high orbit satellite that is available for good percentages of the day and
designed to experiment on.

 Looking at the launch schedule of BIRD-BT, I must have caught a random
packet while it was? being deployed/tested.? Both ISS and Bhutan-1 digi's
seem to be turned off, couldn't hear either this morning.? Will continue to
listen...?
?
BTW, it was exciting to realize that when BIRD-BT was launched from the ISS
they were close by and probably will remain near each other for some more
time.? Space is amazing !

Is it me or does the APRS signal not sound as strong as it was before
and is it not hearing quite as well?

I am having a heck of a time pinging the digipeater and the signal
seems to be down a bit.

Could entirely be something on my end, but I would appreciate others'
opinion.

Yeah, I was one of them most of the afternoon. I was in the chair in the

I definitely have to agree with you.

The signal does seem to be less than half of what it used to be, and I have
yet to hit it myself. When it used to be so easy.

Not sure what has changed, but it's certainly not the same as it was before
the shut down several weeks ago.

Is it me or does the APRS signal not sound as strong as it was before and is
it not hearing quite as well?

I am having a heck of a time pinging the digipeater and the signal seems to
be down a bit.

Could entirely be something on my end, but I would appreciate others'
opinion.

73,

I have tried two different radios, an Icom IC-2820h and a Kenwood TM-V71A.
No luck with the Icom at full power on a high elevation pass. Better luck
with the Kenwood but only on higher passes and transmitting with 50w.

Other operators have been able to get their packets digipeated with Kenwood
APRS-Ready HTs, so it's kind of puzzling.

I'm using a Mobilinkd TNC3. I have no problem hitting distant terrestrial
digipeaters with both setups.
