Re: ISS repeater mode to be active



Hello Francisco and All,

           I have noticed the same effect on the ISS
crossband repeater, but have not commented as
I am NOT sure what is happening.  Just as CT1EAT
mentioned, there have been times that the ISS repeater
will completely cut OFF, then later come back ON.

           It simulates a possible DESENSE of some kind,
and it may even be from another ISS system.  I do not
completely rule out an earth-bound cause, or a system
anomaly or timeout-- of some kind?

           Does anyone else have any thoughts?

Thanks,
Charlie Schlieper, N5TD
Temple, Tx
