PSAT2(NO-104) will enter about 2 weeks of good USA coverage between about 10 to 22 June. Normally its low inclination orbit favors the southern USA. But the orbit is also elliptical and so there are times when the elevation angle to more northern stations rises as much as 20 degrees.. Bringing higher latitude stations into the footprint..
Currently it's VHF Xponder has been in DTMF & APRS-to-Voice (A2V) mode but with the ISS digipeater being inactive, we will enable PSAT2 for normal APRS operations plus the A2V feature.
its HF/UHF transponder will remain in linear operation for PSK31 SSTV and Voice.
We also note that PSAT(NO84) has awakened from poor sun angles and we will try to activate its digipeater.
