Re: The LID List Begins

Hello Again....

At 1400 UTC ISS went into the Repeater mode.
This is 145.990 up and 437.800 down.
To make it into the APRS-IS, or to www.ariss.net,
the signals must appear to be digipeated* via RS0ISS-3*.
Since they are NOT digipeated, they will NOT show up on ARISS site.
However, ALL transmissions on 145.990 WILL be re-transmitted!
This includes packets which CAN be decoded!

I hope this clears things up a bit.

73, Scott
