Suitsat SSTV signal


Yes, we have set the SuitSat-1 downlink to be the same as the Packet 
uplink.  The ARISS/Human Spaceflight team have a very limited set of 
frequencies in the 2 meter OSCAR sub-band (145.80-146 MHz).  145.99 is one 
of them.

As Miles Mann, WF1F, described, we will be reconfiguring the Kenwood D700E 
from packet mode.  Our tentative plan is to set the D700 into a repeater 
mode with that will enable the ISS radio to repeat the Suitsat audio on 70 
cm, specifically, 437.80 MHz.

All hams are requested to refrain from uplinking packet (or voice) on 
145.99 during Suitsat operations.  This will allow you and your local 
neighbors to better hear the SuitSat downlink.  SuitSat will only be 
operational for a few days.....we all would like to get the most of its 
operations.  So please due your best to abide by this plan.

We will continue to provide late-breaking information on SuitSat plans on 
the following web sites.  Please check them often.  And get your stations 
ready to copy the audio, voice telemetry, and SSTV picture.

 >the down link from SuitSat will be 145.990 FM.

Is this not the same freq. as the worldwide packet uplink, so a receiving
station unfortunate enough to be near a packet station will suffer QRM?
