    What "Mode" is selected in TQSL for logging satellite based APRS QSOs? FM?

    PACKET or PKT.

    Aimed the Arrow out the back garage door (it's raining here) and got digipeated twice via PSAT. Could only follow about a third of the pass though, strong signals.

    On the last pass, I was fortunate that the storms quit long enough for me to go outside. We have been having severe weather here all day. It was nice to see you on NO-84 :)

    The rain let up a while here too, pretty busy pass. I had a time getting back to you. It’s really good seeing some live ops on.... :D

    Got two messages via PSAT-1 on this morning’s pass along with normal telemetry, something new for me.

    Turns out they were bulletins, but I’ve not decoded any before.

    When you see PSAT-1 on your radio's screen from the satellite, the APRS is not operating. You'll typically see that then the telemetry that's being downlinked.

    You can visit:

    http://aprs.org/psat.html

    and see how to decode the telemetry. Fun stuff :)
