Possible ISS Crossband repeater activation



As part of the Space Patrol special event activities, the Russians have
submitted a request to place the Kenwood radio into repeater mode beginning
some time on Dec 27 and operating until 0912 UTC on Dec 31 when Exp 12
Commander Bill McArthur will be speaking to Boy Scouts in Thailand. It is
anticipated that this request will be approved and that the radio will be
available for amateur radio operators world wide during the 3+ days of
operation. 

The crew may also join in at anytime so be prepared to talk to them if they
call. The worldwide downlink is 145.80 MHz, and the uplink is 437.80 MHz.
All frequencies are subject to Doppler shift. This link
(http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/news/ISS_frequencies_and_Doppler_correctio
n.rtf) on the ARISS website has a memory programming chart for dealing with
the Doppler when using ISS in crossband repeater mode .

Special thanks to the PCSAT2 team for their coordination efforts to make
this a possibility
