This date 1-31-09 I received a digipeat from WB9L in Indiana, 1924 miles away via ISS digipeat on 145.825. UI-View32, in its station list, provides a distance calculation.
Anyone have a longer digipeat?
You probably know Dr. Charles Simonyi will fly again to spend almost a fortnight aboard ISS and will deal with amateur radio activity for sure.
The launch of Soyuz TMA-14 is planned on March 25th 2009.
It would be nice to see when he plans to switch on the ISS radio station -although the simplest way seems to be listening to him as often as we can.
There must be someone int the States -or elsewhere who would encourage Charles to handle pile ups when operating in HF DX style during one or two orbits time to time!
I have found two URLs where there are information about activities planned and done aboard ISS:
