RE: NA1SS list of worked DXCC entities - Jan 23



First they have to get the HF radio up there. Currently the ISS only has VHF
and UHF capabilities.

The Russian hams can and should turn on the HF transceiver if the US hams
have tech licenses..  I cannot wait to here the pileup on 10-20 meters and I
don't think most understand that at some angle the (say) 20 meter stuff will
likely penetrate and then will undergo normal hop propagation.  It will
likely cover a huge area.  A standard call out on a packet/internet dx
cluster will generate a huge response.
