ARISS Packet


I have gotten word that we should expect the ISS crew to turn on the packet 
system sometime this weekend.  (Keep your fingers crossed)

When that happens, expect to hear a periodic beacon every 2 minutes.  You 
are also permitted to send unformatted informational (UI) packets to the 
ISS.  In other words, it should be operational for APRS beacons.  Please do 
not use the Packet Mailbox System at this time.  The crew will not have the 
computer hooked up to read your messages at this juncture.

I have included some information regarding the packet system below.

1)  ISS Packet Callsign:  RZ3DZR

2)  Frequencies:  Uplink:      145.99
                               Downlink: 145.80

3)  Please be courteous and do not transmit on the packet uplink until for 
have heard the packet beacon.

4)  If you copy the packet system, please let us know and save your 
information for a future QSL card.

5)  For more information on ARISS, see:  http://ariss.gsfc.nasa.gov/
