Re: ISS STATUS REPORT #03-46



3 tons of stuff eh?
Enough to keep me busy!
I bet there was some HAM stuff to be unpacked too.
Oh, but one needs to be a HAM to WANT to use....

Maybe when KB5UAC gets up there we will HEAR/SEE HAM Radio does still work!

ED likes to take pictures and make his Personal webpage #1!
Thanks to Dave N6CO for the updated keps, without one wonders if there is a 
HAM in Space....

Just a thought.. a theory....... We will see.......

73, Scott

Anyone hear ISS????????????

> The unloading of nearly three tons of new supplies from a Progress cargo
> vehicle began in earnest this week aboard the International Space
> Station. Commander Yuri Malenchenko and NASA ISS Science Officer Ed Lu
> spent time each day unpacking, cataloging and stowing the equipment.
>
> The ISS Progress 12 (12P) vehicle brought food, fuel and equipment to
> the Station Aug. 30,U.S. time. This week, the thrusters on 12P were
> successfully tested and can be used to increase the Station's altitude
> when necessary. Also, nitrogen from the cargo vehicle's gas tanks was
> used to add pressure to the atmosphere inside the Station, while oxygen
> repressurization from 12P will occur later.

> Among the new supplies were two canisters for the Resistive Exercise
> Device weightlifting machine, which Lu installed Friday. Coincidentally,
> Lu had trouble adjusting the resistance on one of the previous canisters
> Wednesday. He removed that set and will work to repair the problematic
> canister next week so that the new ones that arrived on Progress can be
> reserved for the next crew to live aboard the Station.

> Friday, flight controllers in Mission Control Houston worked on the
> communication link between the Space Station and control centers in
> Houston, Moscow and Huntsville, Ala. The crewmembers noticed they were
> barely able to hear voice calls from the capcoms, or spacecraft
> communicators, from each of the centers. The problem was narrowed down

> been restored to normal levels by temporarily bypassing that specific
