When they switch the ISS from cross band repeat to digipeater we will again have a 1200 baud aprs satellite. The ISS has a very strong downlink and is easy to work.
Try receiving the 9600 baud beacon on the ISS cross band repeater downlink. Christy told me about it and it beacons occassionaly.
73 Marc glad you have the new TNC working now.

Good Day to all,

Thanks for the feedback.

Yes it seems that there is no 1200baud active these days, I tried many (including the Bird series) without success.

The reason I was asking was that I had some doubt about my setup as I just changed from the Signalink TNC (red transformer) with which I had about 50% success at 9k6 on the uplink to a MicroHAM DXP which is really a nice gear  with 100% success now. E.g. yesterday I made about 30 digipeats in one MO-112 pass with max 2 ele. 28 deg., basically 100% success horizon to Horizon.

As regards F3, it is sleeping these days per from the last message I downloaded from Mark (N8MH) he was going to let it rest in an attempt to reduce the frequent shutdown which was recurring lately.

I will continue to try the other birds.

Jean Marc.. as per your request on the amsat-bb  right now there are no active digipeaters on 1200 baud  since the ISS  cross band repeater is working they have the digipeater shut down. The only other Digipeater is NO-44 which is up and down so you have to watch the satellite status page.  The  ISS has a 9600 baud beacon on the cross band repeater downlink  but no didgipeater.

the only other active digipeater is Falconsat-3 which is 9600 baud.

Have a great week  73  JACK  KC7MG
