ISS crossband (voice) repeater system is on!

ISS News

Hello All,

I just received reports (from friends) that
the ISS (voice) crossband repeater is switched on.
The frequencies are:
TXuplink: 437.800 (FM).
TXdownlink: 145.800 (FM).

Do not use too loud mic modulation
otherwise repeater switch off!!!
When you do not correct doppler you -
should NOT operate on the ISS repeater!!!
Read repeater operations tips on my page:

Thanks, Cor!

Hello All....

Cor is RIGHT!
Doppler correction is a MUST for TX or you will not make it.
Also, mic gain should be low if adjustable.
If you can not adjust, back off from the mic a few inches.
A normal voice at 6" away from the mic should be OK.
Hope to hear/talk to you on ISS repeater!

If you have a QSO with Bill, please keep it short so others can have the same chance. I heard NA1SS for the first time lastnight on the repeater and was unable to work him due to another ham having a 7 minute QSO.
