Re: ARISS Contacts During JOTA



No plans to schedule contacts during JOTA. It will be a crew preference.

Regarding the crossband repeater...good idea but bad timing. Some recent
issues with the D700 prevent any automatic operations by the radio. I'll
keep it in mind if things get turned around in time.

Not sure If the ARISS project isnt going to schedule a contact during
that time period, but if they dont could we get repeater mode for
October 19-22?
  Since repeater mode is difficult, it would  be nice to have a couple
days to play with it prior to the event.
