The best way is to distribute the information is in the beacon on the
145.800 MHz downlink.  We should not be transmitting if we do not 
hear it.  When we hear it, it should contain the uplink channel in the 
beacon information.  Of course, this assumes (ouch!) that the TNC 
on ISS can be programmed with the information.  The optimal  place
to spread the word is from space.  Then, we do not have to wait 
several months for all the magazines and news articles to spread the

A TNC with remote management capabilities on ISS would facilitate
making these changes much faster since the crew is busy with more
important activities.
