Low tech connection to ISS

Just FYI - here's a low technology method that has worked the last few days to connect to the ISS for PMS and digipeating. I have an ICOM 229H connected to an old KPC-3 with a magnet mount antenna placed on a metal roof angled north. I use the windows terminal emulator HyperTerminal for software. I wasn't expecting this to work but it does the job very well.

Engineers conducted minor repairs to NASA's space shuttle Discovery late Tuesday after an errant window cover fell from the orbiter and damaged its aft section. The incident will not delay the planned launch of the orbiter.

Space Shuttle

The following is a statement from the families of the Space Shuttle Columbia mission STS-107:

"As NASA prepares to launch the Shuttle Discovery, we, the Columbia Families, would like to show our support for the STS-114 crew and all the dedication and talent of those who supported this Return to Flight effort. We have had two and one half years to reflect daily on the loss of our loved ones as the Shuttle Columbia (STS 107) broke apart over Texas on February 1, 2003.
