Thanks for your questions.
1. Why is this
experiment being only run for 2 passes?
Since it is so early on the West coast I doubt if many
schools will be able to take advantage of this event
Seems to me that this APRS [2-meter mono band]
experiment has more educational benefit than running the
PMS in crossband mode for a month when only a handful of
stations in the U.S. have that capability. ;-)
I had a nice 5 minute chat with Andy, KD5CHF aboard MIR today (1528 UTC 2/28).
When MIR came up over the horizon, I called R0MIR and he came back.
I called on the 70 cm QSO freq. 437.925 151.4 PL.
There is some sort of noise signal behind him that at times will obliterate his audio.
It comes and goes as if something is keying up aboard MIR and interfering.
(Something to do with the new TNC???) Andy wasn't sure what it was.
Using headphones helped considerably. It was about 6:30 PM aboard MIR at the time and Andy said he was "taking in a little window time".
It was a very enjoyable QSO. Andy sounded great!

Tnx fer the info. Someone had a valid (I think) comment on the AMSAT-BB....
why can't the SYSOP function of the TNC be used to correct the needed parameters?
Keep up the good work!
