Working the Voice Repeaters

The freqs are correct, eh? There is one cross-band split repeater that is U/v and the other is V/u with PL? And the UHF freq on both of these is the same -- 437.800? One repeater the UHF is up and on the other it is down?

Since one does not know the schedule of when things are turned on (is this correct?) then it would seem that one needs to listen on 437.800 before doing anything. If you hear someone there, then you know to use the V/u with PL. If you don't, then switch to the VHF downlink freq (145.800) and listen.

Program 5 SPLIT memory channels for ISS UHF packet!


Due the doppler effect the ISS packet frequency on
UHF chance verry fast (much faster compared to VHF!).
If you program 5 split memory channels in your
transceiver (or HT) you can work the ISS packet
the whole pass.
For high elevation passes with ISS at AOS start
with M1 and you can work the ISS UHF packet system
several minutes.
The doppler effect chance verry fast when the ISS comes
close, go to M2 and if the ISS is at maximum -
elevation than go to M3.

M1 437.560Mhz 437.540Mhz
M2 437.555Mhz 437.545Mhz

Greetings to all..

I have been enjoying working the ISS over the last few weeks on both VHF and UHF..
I have started reading up on telemetry over the last few weeks and was curious if there is any "easy" telemetry avail for any of the ham birds? I am assumming all the ISS info is secure through the TDRS? Are there any "filters" I can place in the APRS log-in to view telemetry being RX by others?

Thanks for the help-
