Wisp Hints #3 - Fast upload

Hints to make Wisp more faster to upload messages to satellite
especially for HO-68 satellite.

1st - Prepare fresh messages and delete any none uploaded messages.

2nd- Do not make Wisp busy by requesting Dir or reading a file.
on the other hand DO NOT make the satellite busy too.

( DO NOTHING ) Let Wisp Hear the satellite .
Wisp w'll do every thing automatically to upload your files.

This is very important step (advice) and I'll say it again !!
(DO NOTHING ) Just watch your screen and enjoy your hot tea
and let Wisp hear and talk with the satellite alone.

3rd-The above advice wll prevent collision of the packet data between
your station and satellite .So more faster handshake of data in less time.

4th-Prepare your message with short title.

5th- Write your message in shorthand style .

6th- No need for HUGE signatures .See below the cool Alan's post at AMSAT 28 Jun 2000

I've noticed that there are some *huge* signatures on messages posted to the
sats. I'm all for telling people who you are and what you do. But I saw
one that had to be over 20 lines. It was more than the message. Isn't that
kinda wasted bandwidth? If there wasn't email or, maybe I could see
it, but I'd think it would be better to place that stuff on a web page and
not *every* message.

See photos for more info.
