145.800-146.0 Mhz exclusively for satellite communication at 145.795 plus a 
deviation of 5KHZ they are not transmitting in the satellite band allocations.

We have here an old packet node with about 2 or 3 regulars on 145.790 they are 
not interfering too much as they are not too close but i can hear them mainly 
at ISS LOS. I can imagine 795 can be rough at times...

Nothing is perfect on earth and in space too...
