From pms reports I saw the ISS radio is in Region 1 mode.
After voice operation (from Russian cosmonaut Pavel) he
forgot often to switch back to normal aprs freq (145.990 TXup).
Please STOP sending aprs to 145.200.
If crew operate in voice in the future they will hear
many aprs-packet bursts and I can imagen they will stop
So PLEASE DO NOT send APRS on 145.200!!!!!

Pavel V. Vinogradov, Expedition 13 commander operates the amateur radio station onboard ISS
As various sources reported, ISS Expetion #13 commander Pavel V. Vinogradov is being active in Russian almost everyday over Siberia, sometimes over European Russia as well.
After these contacts take place, the radio is often left on the Region 1 uplink by mistake even when packet radio is active.
Few days before easter, American Astronaut Jeff Williams exchanged greetings over the Houston area.
