I absolutely agree. This case is even more stupid. One of the people who designed the satellite contacted me quite a while back asking about getting the packets on the PCSat page. I told him to let me know when they were testing the sat, so I could look at the actual packet on the APRS IS and set up the filter. He said they weren't going to test it on the APRS IS. I told them that was a mistake. If they had done a full-up test the problem would have been detected when it was easy to fix.

No sympathy.
