  • How/Where to get status of Voice Repeater, PCSat2, etc ...   10 years 30 weeks ago
    The info for PACKET, VOICE and REPEATER are available on this site in the upper right of the main page. PCSAT2 info is available on their page :[url]http://web.usna.navy.mil/~bruninga/pec/pc2ops.html[/url] The PCSAT2 team also posts to the AMSAT-BB [url]http://www.amsat.org/amsat/archive/index.html[/url] with updates. The latest info indicated that PCSAT2 will be off until early Dec due to power budget issues. The standard configuration of the voice repeater on ISS cannot be activated until PCSAT2 is removed from ISS due to potential interference issues. That is one reason IFC shows it being 100+ days since the repeater was active.

  • FRIEND FROM NETHERLAND'S TALK WITH WILLIAM   10 years 31 weeks ago

    :D Congratulations Cor,

    Is fantastic when we listen NA1SS answering our call... right :?: :wink:

    more one time Congratulations!!

    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 31 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.
