Kenwood TH-F6A

I have a TH-F6A and just got the Arrow Antenna with Duplexer. I can't set my offset to 1.31 according to Kenwood this radio doesn't do that.

Anyone got any ideas to how I can listen to the ISS? I want to see if I can do it and I can work on talking later.

I have not had any luck contacted any sats or ISS yet. I am trying the AO 51 pass over Hawaii tonight.

Thanks and 73s

Owen and Richard Garriott


I received the following e-mail today from Owen Garriott, W5LFL and wanted to share this with the Amateur Community. Please post this and pass it to others in the amateur radio community, as appropriate.

ARSIS International Chairman
Richard, W5KWQ, landed in Kazakhstan on Friday, 24 October 2008 at about 0936 local time and was met there by his father Owen, W5LFL. They became the first American "second generation" father/son combination to have both flown in space and the first cosmonaut/astronaut-trained pair in the world. They returned to Star City near Moscow that afternoon for medical evaluation and this is the first interview provided by Richard the very next day. It is transcribed and delivered by Owen to the ham community.
