Beside the heavy workload, I must admit I was expecting more ham radio
activity from the present ISS crew.
I was particulary surprised during the Xtmas season, when usually the crews
did in past (MIR missions) many contacts over Europe.
But, after I read the the above reply, I think I got a clue why the ham
hasn't be very popular lately. Althought it might not be the define reason,
the fact of the actual "shack" is located on a "non-window" module certanly
doesn't help much...
Any comment?

Happy New Year
