The ISS repeater will be in V/U mode through January 17, according to
I just had a 20 degree pass and it was really loud, far louder than anything I've ever heard from AO-51 or any other bird. Quite a lot of activity, I worked 6Y5RA, N4QWZ, YV5MM, and KG4ZLB. Called N2EHG (good signal) several times but no answer.
Note that this is NOT the usual ISS repeater configuration (used to be 70cm uplink, 2 meter downlink). The downlink is now on 437.8, and the uplink is on 145.99 (67hz PL tone needed).

Does anyone know if this is valid?
Looks like May 12th and then 15th - Shuttles to be launched 3 days apart?
Only thing that I can figure is that they are sending the 2nd one up to be ready in case there is a rescue mission needed... Either way, I have already booked the camp site in titusville, and plan on being down there for both of them.
