Re: ISS status



It would be a full time job keeping the status of the ISS up to date and even then it is not always clear why the radio has been turned off. Checking the following to get a decent idea of what is going on in near real-time.

The amateur radio gear is required to be powered off for any vehicle activity associated with the Russian segment and all EVA events.
