FINDU.com has not added PSAT2-1 and USNAP1-1 to the PCSAT.FINDU.COM page so
use these direct searches to find raw packets.

PSAT2-1:  http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/raw.cgi?call=psat2-1&time=1
USNAP1-1: http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/raw.cgi?call=usnap1-1&time=1

PSAT2-1 (Safe mode, no users) is alive and have seen dozens of packets.
Voltage was low 6.51v at end of last USA east cost pass but it was in the
dark and expected.

We will leave it in SAFE mode for a day to watch charging.
Remember you can also capture PSK31 telemetry every 2 minutes on
435.350 +/- Doppler

Also listen for short 9600 packets from USNAP1 on 437.605

My g5500 rotator fails intermittently to start in the up position however
momentarily pulse in in the down position it will act normally for several
minutes. 	

Any suggestions on how to fix it?

TNX Slon for the quick reply
The resistance from pin 6 to 5 and six to 4 is 8.8 ohms and the voltage are
the same is 23.4 vac  which probably rules out high resistance on the up pin
+ I check the plug

Any other suggestions??

Check the ?plug / din? connection in the wires to the box. Mine did similar
things until I made sure the wires in those plug connectors were snug..
Now, no more issues...

Nick,
 ?? The setscrew holding the gear onto the motor may be loose and
slipping, reversing jams it for bit so it works and then it starts
slipping again.
I would swap AZ and EL at the control box and make sure it is mechanical
at the rotor first just to be sure.

Good afternoon,

I have an individual who has approached me about working with him over
the phone to help him set up SatPC32. Unfortunately, I do not use
SatPC32 for antenna or radio control on a daily basis and am probably
not the best person to help.

If anyone is willing to help someone with SatPC32 via the phone,
please let me know offline.

Thanks!

MIT president L. Rafael Reif issued the following statement today to all
members of the MIT community, including yours truly.
Reif, himself a Venezuela-born US citizen whose parents emigrated from
Europe in the 1930s to escape Nazism, received his PhD from Stanford
University and is a recognized authority in information technology.? He has
been president of MIT since 2012.
In his letter, he draws attention to the global nature of the MIT community
and its foundation as a meritocracy, as well as the need to protect against
academic espionage wherever it may occur.? Like MIT, AMSAT and amateur radio
itself are global communities, whose members think for themselves about the
issues Reif is raising, and develop their own points of view.

For this reason, I am circulating Reif's message for your information and
without further comment.

| To the members of the MIT community,

 MIT has flourished, like the United States itself, because it has been a
magnet for the world?s finest talent, a global laboratory where people from
every culture and background inspire each other and invent the future,
together.

 Today, I feel compelled to share my dismay about some circumstances
painfully relevant to our fellow MIT community members of Chinese descent.
And I believe that because we treasure them as friends and colleagues, their
situation and its larger national context should concern us all.

 The situation
 As the US and China have struggled with rising tensions, the US government
has raised serious concerns about incidents of alleged academic espionage
conducted by individuals through what is widely understood as a systematic
effort of the Chinese government to acquire high-tech IP.

 As head of an institute that includes MIT Lincoln Laboratory, I could not
take national security more seriously. I am well aware of the risks of
academic espionage, and MIT has established prudent policies to protect
against such breaches.

 But in managing these risks, we must take great care not to create a toxic
atmosphere of unfounded suspicion and fear. Looking at cases across the
nation, small numbers of researchers of Chinese background may indeed have
acted in bad faith, but they are the exception and very far from the rule.
Yet faculty members, post-docs, research staff and students tell me that, in
their dealings with government agencies, they now feel unfairly scrutinized,
stigmatized and on edge ? because of their Chinese ethnicity alone.

 Nothing could be further from ? or more corrosive to ? our community?s
collaborative strength and open-hearted ideals. To hear such reports from
Chinese and Chinese-American colleagues is heartbreaking. As scholars,
teachers, mentors, inventors and entrepreneurs, they have been not only
exemplary members of our community but exceptional contributors to American
society. I am deeply troubled that they feel themselves repaid with
generalized mistrust and disrespect.

 The signal to the world
 For those of us who know firsthand the immense value of MIT?s global
community and of the free flow of scientific ideas, it is important to
understand the distress of these colleagues as part of an increasingly loud
signal the US is sending to the world.

 Protracted visa delays. Harsh rhetoric against most immigrants and a range
of other groups, because of religion, race, ethnicity or national origin.
Together, such actions and policies have turned the volume all the way up on
the message that the US is closing the door ? that we no longer seek to be a
magnet for the world?s most driven and creative individuals. I believe this
message is not consistent with how America has succeeded. I am certain it is
not how the Institute has succeeded. And we should expect it to have serious
long-term costs for the nation and for MIT.

 For the record, let me say with warmth and enthusiasm to every member of
MIT?s intensely global community: We are glad, proud and fortunate to have
you with us!?To our alumni around the world: We remain one community, united
by our shared values and ideals! And to all the rising talent out there: If
you are passionate about making a better world, and if you dream of joining
our community, we welcome your creativity, we welcome your unstoppable
energy and aspiration ? and we hope you can find a way to join us.

| In May, the world lost a brilliant creative force: architect I.M. Pei, MIT
Class of 1940. Raised in Shanghai and Hong Kong, he came to the United
States at 17 to seek an education. He left a legacy of iconic buildings from
Boston to Paris and China to Washington, DC, as well as on our own campus.
By his own account, he consciously stayed alive to his Chinese roots all his
life. Yet, when he died at the age of 102, the Boston Globe described him as
?the most prominent American architect of his generation.?

 Thanks to the inspired American system that also made room for me as an
immigrant, all of those facts can be true at the same time.

 As I have discovered through 40 years in academia, the hidden strength of a
university is that every fall, it is refreshed by a new tide of students. I
am equally convinced that part of the genius of America is that it is
continually refreshed by immigration ? by the passionate energy, audacity,
ingenuity and drive of people hungry for a better life.

 There is certainly room for a wide range of serious positions on the
actions necessary to ensure our national security and to manage and improve
our nation?s immigration system. But above the noise of the current moment,
the signal I believe we should be sending, loud and clear, is that the story
of American immigration is essential to understanding how the US became, and
remains, optimistic, open-minded, innovative and prosperous ? a story of
never-ending renewal.

 In a nation like ours, immigration is a kind of oxygen, each fresh wave
reenergizing the body as a whole. As a society, when we offer immigrants the
gift of opportunity, we receive in return vital fuel for our shared future.
I trust that this wisdom will always guide us in the life and work of MIT.
And I hope it can continue to guide our nation.

 Sincerely,

 L. Rafael Reif
