Re: New ARISS Operations Capability



Hello All....

Doppler REMINDER....

You want to RX high, and transmit LOW at beginning of pass!
Try starting to transmit on 437.790 and move UP frequency as the pass 
progresses.
I will just keep the transmit frequency in my VFO on the rig, and LEAVE the 
RX on 145.800 (+- 3kc Doppler)

Hope this helps....

73, Scott Salinas, Ca.
