I have been trying to digipeat some APRS packets through some of the APRS satellites but I can’t even hear any packets from the usual suspects. So I set up some observations on my ID-568 stations and managed to observe some occasional but rare and weak packets from BHUTAN-1, UiTMsat-1, Maya-1, PSAT-2 and Lilacsat-2 which is very strong.
Thinking I have a problem with my station I looked at many other stations un-vetted observations and found a similar lack of APRS activity.
By the way, is it ethical to vet someone else’s observation? There are heaps and heaps of un-vetted observations. Is that so their stations don’t look bad with too many bad observations?
How will that affect the statistics?
Does anyone know what happened to all the Satellite APRS activity on VHF?
I have been sidetracked lately when I started to take an interest in L-Band.
