RE: SuitSat: What have we learned

I'm intrigued by this as the ISS isn't that far away from SuitSat.

Is this a issue with the amount of QRM from illegal 2 metre users around the 
world? Go outside of Noth America and Europe and there are plenty of 
unlicensed users in the band!! + amateur stations still trying to use the 
ISS Packet Repeater oblivious to the existance of SuitSat ?

Does it indicate that it would be better if future SuitSats transmitted on 
437.800 MHz with the ISS relaying them on 145.800 MHz ?
