Another repeater in Rome (I), location:Castelli Romani ...

Unknown owner, don't know if it is ARI, CISAR, ARAC association or whatever is the name... heard 2 hams at 19 jan, 17.50 GMT talking on this repeater and complaining that is located just on the ISS up & down (145.800-145.200). Wide area coverage judging on the location of the 2 hams, another demostration of respect and civil sense for the other colleagues activity and for space signals incoming. BTW, the use of repeaters in Rome area is near the 5% in the 24 hours. We miss this new jewel, do you ??

Communication during pass 17 jan.2011 11.32h

During the pass of today, 17 jan. 2011 at 11.32 over The Netherlands, I received a weak two-side communication. I was not near my scanner at that moment, so I don't know the frequency.
A time ago I received the communication during a Space-walk and this one sounds a kind of the same like then. Was there any walk or something today?
Here the (very bad) recording :
