Channel B1


Yes, Channel B1 is the public voice channel for Europe, Central Asia and 
Africa (region 1).

As Miles describes, Channel A1 is the Region 2 & 3 (Americas, Asia, 
Australia) frequency and Channel B6 is the world-wide packet frequency.

The Ericsson MP-A radios have a bank of 64 discrete frequency 
channels.  Four zones (A-D) with 16 frequencies in each zone.

I hope this helps.

Subject: [sarex] ISS: channel B1  = region 1 voice

There are three published public channels for ISS.

Channel A1 = Public Voice Regions 2 & 3  145.800 / 144.490

Channel B1 = Public Voice Region 1  145.800 / 145.200

Channel B6 = Public Packet word  wide all Regions 1, 2 & 3  145.800 /

All other channels are reserved for special operations and school

Lets assume ISS is West of Iceland running Voice with the USA.
They will be on channel A1.
Then, If they figure out they have passed to the East of Iceland, they
say "switching to channel B1" for voice over europe, etc.
