A while ago, I asked about ways to improve my delivery of capture satellite APRS packets. I didn't explain myself well, so I am making a second attempt.
It is perfectly possible that I misunderstand how this should work, or that I am doing something wrong.
I have a spare machine that has Windows and UIView installed on it and I have been using that as an Sgate.
My Internet connection was not lost at all during this pass.
Shown below is a typical example of what I see.
UIView shows this packet (below) as gated to the Net (cut and pasted from the "Traffic gated from RF to the Internet" window) . 2015-Nov-01 06:42:14 PSAT-1>APOFF,ARISS,ZL2CIA,I: s#023381,0z290,ajFLCGLBGgkFnIFJLHJjFnBECMGNfFlkEmLF
This is from the Findu site: 20151101064809 : W3ADO-1]BEACON,SGATE,qAR,UA0SNV-1:T#010,089,072,075,104,215,11111111,0001,1 20151101055630 : PSAT-1]APOFF,ARISS,qAS,EA6XQ:s#023352,0z290,JlAOJAIlApgAnNBNMBNkAnjAoMBLNCOeAjlA
20151101055629 : PSAT-1]APOFF,ARISS,qAS,EA6XQ:!05 . S\127 . WS120/999/W3ADO s#023352,0z290 20151101053751 : PSAT-1]APOFF,TCPIP*,qAS,N0AN:T#098,806,071,919,873,771,00011100
I would expect my gated packet to appear on the APRS-IS at 20151101064214 (give or take a few seconds). I would have thought it would be shown between the two records at 20151101055630 and 20151101064809
No other captured packet beat mine to the APRS-IS. In fact there are no packets at all from ZL or VK stations who would have been in the satellite footprint shown (none, as I write).
I looks to me as though the packet didn't make it to the APRS-IS. If any other station also gated packets during this pass (which seems likely), then those didn't make it either.
Is there anything I can change or alter at my end to improved the chance of captured and gated packets making it to the APRS-IS?
