I was reminded by a thoughtful person that suggested we could do 
the same in our own beacons to spread the word.  Why wait for the 
TNC on ISS to be reprogrammed, when we can add the information
to our own beacon for others to see.  This can be done today!

For example, a beacon could contain additional information like:

TX: 145.99 MHz
RX: 145.80 MHz


Transmit on 145.99 MHz
Listen on 145.80 MHz
