Re: Improvements on ISS


I guess I am partly participating in this project already.
It was my understanding that NASA did not want any GPS tied into ISS packet 
radio. I guess the fear is/was it gives realtime data tracking  to anyone on 
earth like terrorists etc...

I am currently uplinking ISS's psudo position using APRStk, which tracks ISS 
and will send out it's position via ISS's digipeater.
This shows up as ISS_55 for example. The 55 will change in value, as it is 
the day of the keps. ie.. day 55= 55th day of 2004. So as the keps are 
updated, so will the number.
I am also uplinking all data heard here to the www.ariss.net site.

My 2 cents..

73, Scott WA6LIE
