ARISSat-1 active in test mode

Some early reports out of S. Africa and Japan indicate that ARISSat-1 is active in test mode. This should include SSTV, Voice Telemetry, Data Telemetry. Doubtful that the Linear Transponder will work due to no external antenna available for the input (RX). The system should be active until 1400 UTC on Sunday (July 31).

NASATV mentions ARISSat-1

If I am not mistaking.. Late afternoon today on NASA-TV made reference to an EVA ARISSat-1 was mention by the NASA narrator this afternoon for Amateur Radio operators. Not that I am attentive to NASA-TV 24 hours, I do have a DTV system dedicated in the shack. If I were only hearing things... MY APOLIGIES...

ISS callsign changing?

Hi, Can anyone explain why the ISS changes it's ARPS from NA0ISS-4 to NA0ISS-3 at random? I'm sure many are beaconing with the wrong callsign in because the ISS has gone from -3 to -4 and back again nilly willy.

Any help/explanation apprecated.....Cheers Dave G7UZN
