  • will the ham radio on ISS be active with sts114   10 years 4 weeks ago

    The radio was not been inactive due to STS-114. The radio was in voice repeater mode and stopped functioning properly. John Phillips has returned the radio to Packet mode.

  • Space Shuttle IDEA !   10 years 4 weeks ago

    was thinking about this idea, why not have the underside of the shuttle be enclosed in a protective cover like the apollo missions, a cover that protects the orbiter from debris on takeoff and jettisoned in orbit???????Just a thought

  • Frequencies between STS-114 and ISS ?   10 years 4 weeks ago

    Hello LU1WEO,

    The only analog freq I've heard (from friends) is 259,700Mhz AM.
    But this freq is used from shuttle to ground-control.
    Most other freqs are digital (KU-band).
    But the radio communications from the shuttle
    is often to hear on NASA-TV.

    :D Hi folks
    I'm so happy to inform all you that I get my 1st contact over the ISS repeater mode today on 01:38UTC with PY3FF (Mr. Rafael Haag).
    Fantastic... good sound... 5/9.
    Now, I'm waiting the aproximation of ISS to try a new contact.
    Bye... ISS is comming.

    God bless all you

  • Repeater may be active   10 years 5 weeks ago

    Hello all,

    When you operate the iss please look first at:

  • Repeater may be active   10 years 5 weeks ago

    It is up (Finally) after an unexplained failure, the repeater mode was activated again (confirmed at 1905 UTC July 20) and it appears to be working well. ENJOY while it lasts.

  • Repeater may be active   10 years 6 weeks ago

    I did get a message from the crew that ISS is now in repeater mode. It appears to not be working properly since no one (including myself) has been able to use except for when it first went active. I'll try to see if I can resolve the issue but with the shuttle activities still present, we may be listening to silence for awhile.

  • Repeater may be active   10 years 6 weeks ago

    :idea: Hello All, :idea:

    In case the crossband repeater is active.

    You should NOT operate ISS if you do NOT know how to correct
    your TX doppler frequency!!!!!!!

    You should NOT operate ISS if you do not have a full duplex-
    crossband transceiver.

    Doppler is easy to learn, select in your MAIN display the
    TX freq, in your SUB-display the RX freq.
    Correct your doppler freq several times in the whole
    pass, and keep listening all the time (even when you TX!) on
    the downlink RX frequency!!!!!

    Why is doppler correction so importand?
    If you do not correct your doppler your freq arrives ISS almost
    10khz wrong!!!! (In the beginning and the end of the pass!).
    And this give much QRM to all !!!!!!!!!!!

    http://pd0rkc.mine.nu/issdoppler.html

    Good luck, and have fun!

  • transmitting to iss using UISS sofware   10 years 6 weeks ago

    Hello,

    You must use a comport to switch PTT.
    You can do with 2N2222 transistor but it
    has no protection.
    I prefer to switch PTT (with AGW) with an
    4N33 optocoupler.
    Also you have to connect your soundcard
    speaker output to the mic of your transceiver.
    The best protected soundcard interface I have
    seen is here: http://pi4frg.cjb.net/pskbox/

    Also this website can help you:

  • Help - I'm confused   10 years 6 weeks ago

    On the last pass of the ISS I succeeded in digipeating a message. I will try to contact someone specific next time. When I enter "K" to allow
    message input, what key or key sequence takes me out of that mode?
    I have been exiting with CNTL C.

    Thanks for your help.

  • Help - I'm confused   10 years 6 weeks ago

    UNPROTO (which is a non retry, one time, get it or forget it transmission) is the preferred method to communicate via the ISS. Since connections in normal packet require retries and error correction, it gets a bit congested with ISS able to hear and relay all of that. With UNPROTO, you make it or you don't and then YOU have to retry.

    When you are in your packet program, you should be able to type a short text string and hit <ENTER> or what ever your program is set to transmit your message. Once the message is transmitted, if heard by ISS, it will be relayed to everyone else.

    You can test this with a terresterrial digi by inserting the callsign or alias of a local packet digi in place of the 'ARISS' in the unproto setup. After that, switch it back to ARISS and you should be ready to be relayed.

  • Help - I'm confused   10 years 6 weeks ago

    Yes, that helped. I have done some research since I posted that message and have found out about "UNPROTO". I don't fully understand
    exactly what you type at the keyboard to carry on a conversation via
    this traffic method. After you do "UNPROTO CQ VIA ARISS", then what?
    Any help would be appreciated. I have just started listening to the ISS
    a few days ago and have been able to hear and connect with them easily.

    My equipment is simple - an ICOM 229H 2 meter rig connected to an
    old KPC-3 with a 19 inch vertical antenna on a magnet mount base
    placed on the metal roof of our rental place. Low tech but it has worked
    well. I monitor the position of the ISS with this web site and it has been
    very accurate as to the positiion of the ISS.

    After I get the communication process worked out then I will rig up
    my KLH Yagis and do more of this.

    Again, any help will be appreciated and will alow me to avoid adding to the QRM.

    Rich, N7VIY

  • Help - I'm confused   10 years 6 weeks ago

    Rich,
    I'll presume you meant 145.800 and had a typo.

    The first callsign is the callsign of the originating station. The callsign marked with an asterisk (*) is the callsign of the station heard directly. In your example, that is RS0ISS-3*

    Since ISS is a digipeater, ground stations can originate a packet and have ISS relay that packet so other can see and respond.

    That help any?

    Shuttle keps are usually available here: [url]http://www.amsat.org/amsat/sarex/orbit.html[/url] No updates for STS-114 are posted yet. Keps change for shuttle constantly since they are often making course adjustments. Be prepared to update often. Since Shuttle will be docked to ISS 2 days after launch, you can use ISS keps at that point.
