The title sums up the question

I went to their homepage

and check the faqs and frequencies used to retransmit, but it doesnt look like it's been updated in a while. it says " The next Space Shuttle mission is planned to be STS-120, Discovery. Launch is targeted for October 23, 2007." ---- LOL

so just curious if they still do retansmissions or not anymore.

thanks ---

Trying to track the ISS

Hallo into the Round,
I'm trying to track ISS, put in all data, and after all has been sorted out appropriately,
after 5-10 min no data are given for the next 10 days as requested.
Will ISS be invisible for the next 10 days for the Bali-Indonesia-Area ?
Is the mesospheric albedo already so far spread out,
that you can say in advance, where it will be visible and
where the accumulated water in the mesosphere will be obscuring ISS?
The only data given is next pass in 18 mins and 2 sec.,
but on your map the ISS is SES of us near Perth now and the local sky has since the
last Re-Orbiting Manoeuvre (11.01.2008) a very high hazy cloud-layer which lets

Kenwood Internal TNC's and UISS

Greetings all-

I'm running the TS-2000 and the D710 and I have yet to find a TNC setting
in UISS which works with them. The MFJ-1278 will at least function in RX.

Anyone have the answer to this?

I have a question for the group.... I've noticed lately that people are connecting to the ISS BBS on most every pass.....and I've also noticed that the stations that are connecting are new calls that I haven't seen before. Have they just not read...or done any leg work to understand accepted protocol ....?? I thought I read awhile ago that people using the BBS should use the later this etched in stone or do I just need to accept the fact that I can't digi my aprs info during these passes?

Any help in clearing this up would be greatly appreciated....

Fun, light-hearted ISS team Interview

I just read this fun story and watched a neat video with Dan Tani and Peggy Whitson here. It's nice to see them getting the chance to just relax every now and then.
