Current misconfiguration

Seems someone on the ISS activated the TNC but left the radio in the ITU region 2&3 voice configuration. I would suggest that the packet folks not utilize the voice uplink for packet as it will cause interference to that uplink and discourage the crew from wanting to listen for calls. Be patient and wait until the packet operations return to their normal 145.825 simplex frequency. There are 2 school contacts scheduled for tomorrow (April 01) so the radio should change operations after each one of those sessions.
