    I believe a #10 envelope will do. I usually fold it in thirds and send it in another #10.

    As long as us use an envelope that will hold a 3 1/2 X 4 1/2 inch (9 X 14 mm) card, then that should do just fine.

    SWL cards are available for monitoring the ISS. Just send the date, time and other info to the QSL bureau just like a request for a QSL card.

  • SSTV schedule?   10 years 27 weeks ago

    The SSTV system is currently awaiting a dedicated computer. The next supply ship to the ISS is scheduled for late December. This item has been bumped from the cargo manifest several times and replaced with more critical items so at this point is wait and see.

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    Thank You All for your help! N5VHO Kenneth, Cor PD0RKC I was able to get into the ISS early this evening on the 16:45 EST Pass, This is what it's all about thank you for taking the time to help me with my questions.

    Best Regards

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    The TX on A, RX on B (or vice versa) is useful if you are working crossband like PCSAT2. Up on 145.825, down on 430 something (I forget at the moment).

    Since ISS is up/down in the same band, you don't want to split the TX/RX but you do need to have an odd offset.

    If you want to do just 440 packet, select Side B.

    You have to work real hard to get the D-7 to show 2 meters on the top (side A) and the bottom (side B). It is just simplier to keep 2 meters on top and 70 cm on bottom.

    Hope that helps clear up a few things.

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    Great ok back to the drawing board and my manual I guess I am a little confused when I did the memory etc. This may seem strange a question but if I had it set up that way, why will it not work.? It gave me an option for setting the TX and RX bands, Obviously I must be missing something obvious here.:)

    I think I have changed so many settings. Anyway I am going back into it and will set all for band A

    Thank you for your patience

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    Bingo.
    You need TX and RX set to A.
    I usally press DUAL so that only side A (2 meters) is on. That should help.

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    OK RX is 145.800 (R)
    TX is 145.990 (T)

    A RX B TX

  • THD-7ag Help   10 years 27 weeks ago

    Let us start from square 1. What frequency does the radio indicate that it is transmitting on when you press BCON? Make sure to look a the display when it is tranmitting.
