Not only does Kenneth (N5VHO) keep everyone updated on the ARISS-related
stuff, between posts to the mailing lists and other releases that show up on the
ARRL web site and other places, he takes time to answer questions from us
hams.  He does a great job, and it is appreciated.

Dave N6CO also does a great job by sending out the ISS keps.  I may not have a
need for them, getting my keps from http://www.space-track.org/ whenever I need
an update, but the fact that he sends those out regularly is great.  I
know N6CO
was a Mir QSL manager, and I have one of those cards at home, and it is nice to
see he's still involved with the ham-related ISS activities.

Now, here's hoping for the ISS repeater to come alive over North
America on Friday,
in time for some quick practice before Field Day over the weekend.  OK, and have
the repeater on for the rest of the world, as well.  :-)
