My received phonesat packets.

I was travelling with work most of last week, but set up my machine to see if it could receive AX.25 packets from and of the phonesat satellites (which have since de-orbited).

I was surprised to find these in my log when I got home

I was quite surprised to receive them as my set-up is not all that good on UHF.
