New ARISS Operations Capability

The ARISS program is pleased to announce that the amateur radio equipment 
aboard the International Space Station is now operating in cross-band 
repeat mode.  We realize that many of you will miss the packet-operating 
mode.  However, cross-band repeat allows further experimentation of the ISS 
amateur radio system

The downlink for this operating mode remains the same, so listen for the 
station on 145.80 MHz.  The new uplink frequency is 437.80 MHz.  All 
frequencies are subject to Doppler shifting.  For further information on 
working satellites and adjusting for Doppler shift, please review Emily 
Clark's (W0EEC) excellent presentation on AMSAT's website, 

ARISS is an international educational outreach program with US 
participation from NASA, AMSAT (The Amateur Satellite Radio Corp.), and the 
American Radio Relay League.  ARISS offers an opportunity for students to 
experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with 
crewmembers on-board the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and 
communities experience, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on 
ISS can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology, and 
learning.  Further information on the ARISS programme is available on the 
website http://www.rac.ca/ariss

Thank you & 73,
