  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 6 weeks ago

    So BBS can connect only to one station each time ?

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 6 weeks ago

    Tony,
    If I understand the series of events properly, it sounds like you timed the system out. You connected but were unable to receive or acknowlege the subsequent frames. The BBS was in the process of retrying when you attempted to connect again. Since the BBS can only accept 1 connect (your first attempt) it would not permit the second since it was still trying to complete the first connect.

    If someone else was connected prior to the ISS becoming AOS at your location, that might explain the disconnect also. If the other station lost the signal then the BBS would have been in the retry operation but would not accept a second connect until it finished retrying and disconnected from the previous station.

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 6 weeks ago

    At 05.29 UTC (May 18), I succeed connect the BBS, then the command doesn't shown. Why ?
    Then I receive this message from ISS : [b:9255289a39]
    RS0ISS-11>YB0EX/V: <<DM>>:
    *** RS0ISS-11 busy
    *** DISCONNECTED [/b:9255289a39]
    Is it mean that too many station are connected to ISS ?

  • ISS handheld 5W, Rochester, NY   10 years 6 weeks ago

    I only have a yaesu vx-150 (5W handheld). I am interested in working the iss. How many people operate the iss with only 5W on a regular basis, and what kind of antenna do you use? I am on a low budget, so I won't be buying a new radio. Is there anyone in the rochester, NY area that works the iss?
    thanks William

    Hello Tony,

    Nice to hear you received my mail.
    I life in the north of the Netherlands (JO33AD).
    On the ISS pictures you see Mike Foale he has left
    the ISS so did Mike Fincke too (wich I have spoke to).
    When you download the complete ISS audio file, you
    can understand that I have spoken with the crew:
    http://pd0rkc.mine.nu/ISSAUDIO/pd0rkciss.mp3

    The ISS (2m./70cm) crossband repeater is not active,
    we have to wait if the crew activate it!
    But you can trie FM satellites like: AO-51, AO-27, SO-50.

    You can see the ISS visible in the sky after 1 or 2 hours
    sunset so the ISS have sunreflection.

    If there are other questions let me (or us) know!

    To be considered for a school contact, you will need to fill out an ARISS application. The application process is explained at [url]http://www.arrl.org/ARISS/ariss-ap.html[/url]

  • Many question connect to ISS   10 years 7 weeks ago

    The 2 commands are essentially the same. If you are having trouble with the ARISS one, Try the RS0ISS-3

    Yesterday, I've succeed to connect the BBS and sent a 3 lines messages. I also try to sent unproto CQ (beacon) every 1 minute to ARISS, but without any succeed. Why this could be happen ?

  • Link budget information   10 years 8 weeks ago

    The orange material is Kapton (not sure of the spelling) to cover the sharp edges of the antenna.

    The wings are artificial grounds to help with resonate frequency on 2 bands.

    Black component is a non metallic guard to protect the connector assembly

    I miss identified it earlier because for some reason, the images do not appear on my work computer. Let me know when you include images and I will wait to respond till I get home.

    Kenneth, [img:1b3925b584]http://kaskusupload.com/userfiles/jn_starry/what.jpg[/img:1b3925b584] I saw that the antenna was cover by plastic ( the orange color) ? Is this right ? Also 2 things that looks like wings ? Is this also a 1/4 wave that will also radiate signal ? [b:1b3925b584]Please correct...[/b:1b3925b584] Also what the black things use for ? Is this a coil that use for make the 1/4 wave become shorten physically. TonyW. YB0EX

    look at figure 7 for the position of the antennas. Figure 8 shows the actual antennas. [url]http://www.amsat.org/amsat/ariss/Papers/Phase%202%20AGM03Final.pdf [/url]
  • callsign for ISS when in voice mode for hams   10 years 8 weeks ago

    Callsign used on the ISS should be NA1SS.

    The callsign you quoted (NN1SS) is a ground station in Maryland, near Washington DC, which is used by the ISS Amateur Radio Club.

    Check out the reference information (lower right box) at http://spaceflight.nasa.gov/station/reference/radio/

  • callsign for ISS when in voice mode for hams   10 years 8 weeks ago

    :idea: Hello om,

    American astronauts use NA1SS.
    The Russians use RS0ISS.

    Turn your speakers on and go to my
    website and you can hear it (hi!).
    http://pd0rkc.mine.nu

    P.s. I have heard Sergei was in the
    past a verry active ham so keep your
    tranceiver tunned on the ISS frequency!
    ------------------------------------------------
    ISS [u:63702f4d9d]VOICE frequencies[/u:63702f4d9d] ITU region:

    REGION 1
    Your RX downlink 145.800 Mhz FM worldwide
    Your TX uplink 145.200 Mhz FM region 1

    REGION 2
    Your RX downlink 145.800 Mhz FM worldwide
    Your TX uplink 144.490 Mhz FM region 2 & 3

    Region 1 = Europe * Middle East * Africa * North-Asia
    Region 2 = North and South America * Caribbean * Greenland
    Region 3 = South Asia * Australia * New Zealand * Oceania

    The best way is to program the SPLIT freq. in your
    memorie channel, or region 1 stations with -
    europe (E) transceivers can use their -600khz -
    repeater shift button/switch!
    And do not forget to have a audio recorder standby!
    I use MP3soundrecorder software (96bit 22khz mono).
    With a sensetive (arround) microphone pointed to
    your external speaker (better quality) you can
    record both (you and ISS crew!).
    Also read ISS voice tips!

    Good luck!
