The ARISS Team is about as frustrated as you are on this topic.  We have 
made numerous attempts to get *and keep* the packet system on.  This crew 
seems to leave it on for an orbit or two and then shut it off.  At least 
that is what it looks like from down here.  I can't tell you how many times 
we have asked to get the packet system back up.

You will see some information in the very near future about the packet 
changeout.  Once that happens, the nocall will disappear.

We were initially promised shared use of a computer.  That has not 
materialized and this is the primary reason that packet is not fully 
functional (I agree that it only takes "my RS0ISS" to change the callsign, 
but without a computer, you can't make the change).  The ARISS 
international team is in the process of getting a dedicated ARISS computer 
for packet use.

I hope this helps explain the situation.  I know it doesn't help get packet 
back on.

Subject: [sarex] ISS on the AIR?

Does anyone on the ARISS TEAM know what is going on with ISS
PACKET operations?
I know ARISS is busy with school voice schedules, but what about
the 75% of the HAMS looking for packet or a voice contact?

After all this time, I really wonder is NOCALL is running the crew up there.
Sure seems so, since there is NOCLUE.

Glad to see the new antennas insalled!
Now if we can get NOCLUE out of the circut, then ISS HAM operations will be
fun for all!
