APRS Pass Predictor

On the AMSAT bulletin board Lynn KJ4ERJ reports the initial keps for the CubeSats launched today October 28 have been loaded into the APRS pass predictor:

For APRS users, to get a pass prediction for your QTH, make sure you’ve beaconed your position recently then send a message to one of the following “stations” and you should receive information on the next (or current) pass:

SAT99999 or DICEY
SAT99998 or DICEF
SAT99997 or RAX2
SAT99996 (Mixed case sat names are not yet supported)
SAT99995 or E1PU2
SAT99994 (Mixed case sat names are not yet supported)

For more information on the satellite pass auto-responder, please see http://aprsisce.wikidot.com/doc:satsrv

PS.  Yes, you can also send an APRS message to ISS or AO51 to receive pass predictions for those satellites as well.
