First AMSAT APRS on PSAT

I’ve been learning about APRS lately, and yesterday I successfully sent my first packet to PSAT and had it repeated.  I’m using a Baofeng UV-82HP HT along with the Mobilinkd TNC2 bluetooth TNC and APRSdroid on my LGV10 phone. For AMSAT use, I use my Arrow antenna.

I was able to hit PSAT again today.

Currently, the ISS is on a SSTV bender, but I’m going to attempt to swap packets in about 30 minutes from now.  Unless I’m getting good SSTV reception, then I’ll just record that and decode.
