Station Reboosted; Toilet in Zvezda Working

ISS Status Report

The engines of the International Space Station's Zvezda service module fired at 1:06 p.m. EST Wednesday for a 2-minute, 22-second reboost of the station. This was the second of three planned reboosts that will put the complex at the ideal altitude for the arrival of Discovery and the ISS Progress 32 cargo craft in February.

The toilet in the Zvezda Service Module was working again after a malfunction early Wednesday sent the crew off on troubleshooting procedures. Flight Engineer Yury Lonchakov replaced a gas separator and checked other plumbing elements. The new Waste and Hygiene Compartment in the Destiny laboratory would have served as a backup if the toilet had continued to malfunction.

Description: 
Aloha from Hawaii! At 14.22.27 UTC (4.22.27 A.M Hawaiian Standard Time) 3 way communications between AH6RH, KH6CPU, and myself (WH7QR) commenced in earnest via the ISS repeater. Due to the early morning hour, repeater was free of additional contact attempts so some "chatting" was done. AH6RH and myself are on the island of Oahu, while KH6CPU is on the island of Lanai. KH6CPU reports full 2 way contact with the Oahu stations at 14.24.00 UTC (peak ISS elevation for this pass). Congatulations to KH6CPU for first full two-way, and much thanks to AH6RH, the Pied Piper of space communications in Hawaii.

Good contact with WH7QR Curtis and KH6CPU Cedric on a 55 degree descending pass east of Honolulu. First two-way contact with Cedric, the only ham on Lanai! Rig is a Kenwood TM-D700 dual-band mobile in a car, with 1/4 wave antennas for VHF and UHF. Doppler compensation on both TX and RX, 5 kHz tuning steps for the VFO yields long and good passtimes.
