ISS amateur radio status (Aug 15)

The TNC on the Kenwood radio appears to have stopped working. Attempts have
been made to restore the functionality of the radio but so far without
success. The crew will be very busy preparing for an space walk on Thursday
(Aug 18) so additional troubleshooting will not be possible until after the
space walk has been completed. 

PCSAT2 is operational and currently supporting PSK-31 uplink on 29.402 and
down linking on 435.275 on a limited basis. Telemetry data from the
Materials on ISS Experiment 5 (MISSE 5) is being down linked on 437.975 in
both 1200 and 9600 baud packet.

Now that PCSAT2 has been installed, operation concerns will significantly
restrict activation of the crossband repeater for extended periods of time
until some tests can be conducted.
