no more radio contacts till about august late august???

i know they dont do radio contacts for schools etc..... for about the 1st 2 weeks after a new expedition crew arrives, but does that mean the packet radio will also be off. Also i realize that they were having some problems with the radio while testing SSTV. ANy information on if they ever fixed whatever the problem is/ was?

just curious and some food for thought

thanks everyone

Misconfigured

During the testing of SSTV, the D700 was accidentally misconfigured. The restoration process has been on board but will be compeleted as the crew has time to accomplish the task. Until the procedure to restore the packet configuration is completed, we will not be hearing much activity.
