IN  LIGHT OF SOME COMMENTS THAT HAVE APPEARED RECENTLY ON THE VARIOUS  
BULLETIN
BOARDS; THE COMMENTS BELOW STILL HOLD TRUE:  
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++
Lately  there have been some comments on the various bulletin boards about 
having  general contacts or leaving the packet or crossband repeater on.  
Remember  that ARISS is a guest onboard the ISS and if the crew elects to not 
turn  something on or to operate, then that is their  decision.

There  have been rumors in the past indicating that the ISS was having 
direct  contacts  on the 40 meter band.  There is no HF radio equipment on  
board 
and available yet.  The HF antenna is mounted.  Sometimes  WA3NAN will 
retransmit shuttle  audio.
