Bob, WB4APR, reports that the Xbaud - PSK31/CW repeater
experiment has been activated. Bob reports that you need
to connect to pcsat2 and then you can tranmit on 29.401 Mhz
and listen on 435.275 for your signal.

Reports are that you will probably need at least
100+ watts of power on 10m to make it work.
Currently, Henk, PA3GUO, has tried with only a 100 watts
and a dipole without any luck so far.
[ANS-WSR wishes to thank Bob, WB4APR, and
Henk, PA3GUO, for this weeks info]
