So I skimmed the Archives here and saw I need to edit the Auxiliary Files Prior.sqf and add in up to 9 lines of Sat's and their priority.
However, I just went through three Sat changes back to back and SatPC32 never switche3d to the next bird.
What other setting must I alter?
AMSAT LM #901
I have a used home sat setup for sale:
G-5500 El / AZ rotator with the control box and Fiberglass pole.
M2 - 436CP30 Yagi
M2 2MCP14 Yagi
The Antenneas do not have the CP switch setup.
I have some cables but frankly I would question if they are good. I bought
this setup used 3 years ago with good intentions, but never got it
I'm moving so I want them gone, Looking for $500 for all, will NOT ship, I'm
in MN south of Minneapolis about 40 miles. My QRZ address is good.

ARISS News Release No.21-19
Dave Jordan, AA4KN
ARISSContact is Scheduled with Students at
Oakwood School, Morgan Hill, California, USA
March20, 2021—Amateur Radio on the International Space Station (ARISS) has receivedschedule confirmation for an ARISS radio contact with astronauts. ARISS is thegroup that puts together special amateur radio contacts between students aroundthe globe and crew members with ham radio licenses on the International Space Station (ISS).
This will be a Multipoint Telebridge Contact via Amateur Radio between the ISS and students fromOakwood School, Morgan Hill, CA. Students will take turns asking theirquestions of ISS Astronaut Shannon Walker, amateur radio call sign KD5DXB, duringthe ARISS radio contact. English is the language that will be used duringthe contact. The downlink frequencyfor this contact is 145.800 MHz.
The ARISS team in Casale Monferrato, Italy willuse call sign IK1SLD to serve as the ARISS relay amateur radio ground station. Each student asking a question onthe ARISS radio will be conferenced in from home or social-distancedat school.
TheARISS radio contact is scheduled for March 22, 2021 at 11:27 am PDT (MorganHill, CA) (18:27 UTC, 2:27 pm EDT, 1:27 pm CDT,12:27 pm MDT).
OakwoodSchool is a nonprofit,private, rural/suburban school (about 500 students, preschool – 12thgrade) serving the community of Morgan Hill. The school’s STEM curriculumincludes lab science in kindergarten and college prep courses for middle andhigh school students and extracurricular activities in STEM-related subjects (roboticsand astronomy). During the past school year, in preparation for the ARISScontact, the school instituted a Year in Space Program for all grades. Theclass curriculum included new STEM courses that focused on space-related studiesas well as enhancements to the existing STEM courses. This year-long program benefitedfrom a number of volunteers from the space industry who provided classpresentations and student activities in the fields of: radio communication(amateur radio and radio astronomy), astronomy, computer science, engineering,and robotics. High school students from the Astronomy Club will assist amateurradio operator volunteers in integration and testing of the ARISS contact’sbackup radio station, and will help in setup of the ground station. In additionto incorporating amateur-related ideas into after-school STEM programs, theschool’s amateur radio volunteer, who advises the school amateur radio andastronomy clubs, hosted ham radio testing for middle and elementary gradestudents.

15.What was the hardest part of the training, and did you think you were going topass?
16.Do the constellations from the space station look different from how they do onEarth?
17.We've noticed you use a lot of towels-- what if you run out of towels?
18.Although zero-gravity sounds fun at first, does it get “old” after a while?
19.If you were given the chance, would you like to be the first person to mars?
20.How do you stay connected with your family on Earth while in space and how longdo you get to talk or see them?
ARISS– Celebrating 20 Years of Amateur Radio Continuous Operations on the ISS
Amateur Radio on the InternationalSpace Station (ARISS) is a cooperative venture of international amateur radiosocieties and the space agencies that support the International Space Station(ISS). In the United States, sponsorsare the Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation (AMSAT), the American Radio RelayLeague (ARRL), the ISS National Lab-Space Station Explorers, and NASA’s SpaceCommunications and Navigation program. The primary goal of ARISS is to promoteexploration of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematicstopics by organizing scheduled contacts via amateur radio between crew membersaboard the ISS and students. Before and during these radio contacts, students,educators, parents, and communities learn about space, space technologies, andamateur radio. For more information, see www.ariss.org

After being launched on 03/20/2021 at 03: 06 UTC from Baikonour with the Soyuz-2 rocket aboard UNISAT-7.
On 03/21/2021 between 11:55 and 11:58 UTC, three radio amateurs pocketqubes will be deployed from the
mothership UNISAT-7 amateurs, DIY-1, SMOG-1 and STECCO.
DIY-1 / ARDUIQUBE (ARGENTINA):
Frequency: 437.125 MHz USB/CW
Power: 25/50/100 mW.
Telemetry: RTTY 100BD 7N2, 15 ppm CW.
ROBOT CW autotransponder, (like RS-5 / RS-7 / RS10-11 soviet satellites)
At the time of deployment DIY will be in low power until verifying the status of the battery and will be sending
only telemetry in an RTTY sentence. It is recommended to receive it with the FLDIGI-HAB program.
Once the operation and battery charge are verified, the ROBOT will be activated and we hope it will be
the delight of the CW enthusiasts. Much more info once in orbit. I appreciate the reception reports.

students will learn about communication technology through amateur radio
activities. It also encourages other interested people to receive the
The main missions of BCCSAT-1 include: (1) testing in-house developed
satellite transceiver and antenna in orbit (2) experiment of Slow-Scan
Digital Video (SSDV) transmission from the satellite (3) take pictures of
Earth by cameras onboard satellite
BCCSAT-1 communication subsystem is an in-house developed transceiver and
antennas. It has the capability to transmit GMSK modulation signal at 9.6
kbps, FSK for SSDV at 1.2 kbps and receive AFSK signal at 1.2 kbps. The
transceiver will send its parameter such as RSSI and temperature to the
BCCSAT-1 will carry four cameras onboard the satellite and aim to capture
images of the Earth in different wavelengths: red, green, blue, NIR, and
Red Edge band.
We hope to process the images acquired for the Normalized Difference
Vegetation Index (NDVI) and widely used in Science education. The images
will be widely distributed among amateur radio community via the experiment
of SSDV transmission system and GMSK packets downlink. Moreover, BCCSAT-1
will be able to transmit pre-stored images chosen by high school students.
BCCSAT-1 will provide the multi spectral images by having the total of 5
cameras on board; Red, Green, Blue, NIR, and Red Edge bands. The images we
get from these cameras will be used to process for the Normalized
difference vegetation index (NDVI), that will significantly provides huge
advantage on analyzing the terrain of the country.

P.S. Sorry if you didn't make it due to someone repeatedly calling over folks on the wrong sideband unintentionally.
Has anyone modified the LVB Tracker software to allow for more
calibration points? If so, would you be willing to share this?
The reason I ask is that I'm using an old Yaesu G-450XL to rotate my
satellite beams. I was hoping to use a FoxDelta ST2 to control this
rotator but found that the feedback voltage is anything but linear. It
seems that the FoxDelta controller uses the LVB Tracker version 0.7
firmware. I took a quick peek at the source code and it doesn't look to
be too hard to add calibration points for say every 30 degrees. Perhaps
one every 90 degrees would be sufficient. Of course that depends also a
little on the fact if the modified code will fit in the 16F876.
