Over the past couple of weeks, the packet BBS portion (RS0ISS-11) of
the
Kenwood D-700E on board the International Space Station has not been
operational. Efforts were made to try and restore this capability but
were
unsuccessful. At this point it is unknown if this is a temporary or
permanent state. It is our hope that this feature can be restored in
the
future once a computer becomes available.  A computer is tentatively
scheduled to be delivered this year but could be pushed back for
higher
priority items. Once a computer is available, troubleshooting of both
packet
systems can be performed and hopefully restored to full functionality.

The digipeater (ARISS) is functioning but has continued to exhibit
difficulties in relaying data. The digipeater appears to be listening
for
long periods of time and then transmitting all of the buffered
information
at once. This duration of this issue seems to vary depending on your
location. 

The amateur radio gear will be turned off in support of the spacewalk
scheduled for Jan 26. More details as the date comes closer.
