Hi A. J. Farmer,

Perhaps the digi has been on after all (unfortunately).

It would seem that those packet stations operating on the suitsat 
frequency of 145.990 MHz were gated to ARISS.NET. The most recent 
packets received by findu are only 5 hours old as I write. This traffic 
does appear to have gone via RS0ISS-3, so the ISS digi may well be (or 
have been) working (even though the plan was to turn it off).

This is, of course, highly undersirable.

I did not see any new stations appear on ARISS.NET during the 1900 UT 
pass along the US West Coast, so perhaps it really is off now.
