Re: ISS Contact


I have successfully used the ISS crossband repeater in the past.

You will need to correctly adjust your TX frequency for correct for 
doppler. This is essential because the ISS is a single channel 
satellite. You need to start transmitting about 10 KHz low, at the 
beginning of the pass, and end about 10 KHz high. It you do not have 
computer control of your rig, you can print yourself a guide of the 
changes you need to make during the pass.
