Two ISS crew members pass 100 days in space

ISS NewsISS Expedition 14 Commander Mike Lopez-Alegria, KE5GTK (center), and Flight Engineer Mikhail Tyurin, RZ3FT (right), this week passed a milestone of sorts, logging their 100th day in space on December 26. The newest addition to the crew, Flight Engineer Suni Williams, KD5PLB (left), meanwhile has been familiarizing herself with the space station and adapting to life onboard.

Anyone heard the ISS recently?

What is happening with the radios on the ISS? I haven't been monitoring very often but it used to be that every time I did when there was a pass there would either be packet or, on rare occasions, someone calling CQ or QRZ. Of course, apart from when Bill McArthur was up there it was mostly packet. But at least that was something... Now what do we get? Silence.

Do they only use the radio for school contacts now?

Can anyone shed any light on the subject? Are we ever to hear anything more from the ISS?

Is it just me or what?

Is it just me or is there something wrong with the main page? All the stuff on the left and right sides of the main page are there, but the middle text and stories are about two pages down, leaving a big blank spot on the top middle of the page..... When I navigate to other pages, like this page, all seems o.k., but the main page, maybe one or two others have that problem. Thanks, Terry

Special events to mark Jamboree, Scouting centenary

ARISS

Special event station VI3JAM will take to the air January 2-13 from the 21st Scouts Australia Jamboree. Part of the World Scouting centenary activities, VI3JAM is aimed at stimulating interest in Amateur Radio among attending scouts. One Jamboree highlight is a planned Amateur Radio contact with astronaut Suni Williams, KD5PLB, on the International Space Station. The Wireless Institute of Australia (WIA), Amateur Radio Victoria (ARV) and Icom Australia are the sponsors. Icom Australia has supplied a two-building ham radio shack with HF, VHF and UHF equipment. Held every three years, the Jamboree is expected to attract 13,000 attendees.

To continue studying the impact of countermeasures to the effects of living in space, Flight Engineer Sunita Williams unstowed and set up the blood and urine collection hardware. Her samples will be used to better understand the impact of countermeasures such as exercise and pharmaceuticals on nutritional status and nutrient requirements.
