    I didn´t hear anything as they passed over the southeast US around 21:00 UTC on November 29. I hope the astronauts are on tomorrow. I´ve been looking forward to this event.

  • K6DUE, ISS Commemorative Event Status?   14 years 33 weeks ago

    Nothing heard on the 2055 UTC pass over Central US. I suspect you (PE2JMR) may hear nothing also unless they get active in the next 30 minutes.

    Will listen during the next shallow pass off to the west and again tomorrow.

    Good Luck,

  • ISS & Kenwood TM-D700   14 years 33 weeks ago

    Oh Goodie,
    It appears that they sent up half of the Phase 2 equipment but we still have to wait for the verification and certification before they will install it. That is the good news, the bad being that the next progress has been delayed till early next year. So much for getting all of Phase 2 up by Christmas.

    I wonder what the all that equipment looks like after being modified for space. Does anybody have any pictures?

  • ISS & Kenwood TM-D700   14 years 34 weeks ago

    According to the ARRL, the new Kenwood TM-D700E is now on the ISS.

    More details at the end of this ARRL article.

  • ISS & Kenwood TM-D700   14 years 34 weeks ago

    Since it appears that the D-700 is in Moscow being given the final run through, I bet Mike is having great difficulty plugging it in.

    Hopefully things will be more active once the gear is shipped. If not, I vote we send Valery Korzun back up on a taxi mission to get things running again.

  • ISS head packet signal   14 years 35 weeks ago

    My question answered I guess, on and off again once more showing that billions of dollars and the future of space science cannot get a d700 to work !

    dear o dear !

  • ISS head packet signal   14 years 35 weeks ago

    QUESTIONS:

    Is this to say that the D700 stn is now PERMENANTLY active or will there be off and ons again and

    what is the freq, is it simply 145.800 OR is it split to uplink opf 144.99 and downlink opf a45.800 as the news item seems to say?

    Also exactly what unproto paths is it using ?, wide, relay, rs0iss?

    will someone pklease confirm this as information is not very well given it seems

    thanks

  • ISS head packet signal   14 years 35 weeks ago

    Today in it orbits 28,435 to the rededor of the 14:48 UTC and listened
    to DS in frec. of slope of the ISS. Apparently the equipment this in
    operations again.

  • ISS & Kenwood TM-D700   14 years 36 weeks ago

    Q: How many Astronauts does it take to plug in a D700?

    A: Don´t know unless it;s in triplicate and costys thousands of dollars for a bloody simple task that would not challenge a 5 year old.

    Just how hard is it to plug in a d700 one has to ask, even on the ISS ?.

    ridiculous !

    Hi,

    I heared last sunday, ISS got a Kenwood TM-D700.

    Can anyone confirm this? Does anyone know when it will be installed?

    Steffen / do4oss

    Miles Mann posted a message on October 23 concerning the TM-D700. I think it will be sent on the next PROGRESS automated cargo spaceship. I am posting an excerpt from that old message received via SAREX:

    «The ISS packet system is still OFF-LINE. Astronaut Mike Foale, said he will try to fix the problem, however he can not make the repairs until he get permission and has the project "Time-Lined" into his schedule.
    Please be patient.

    SpaceCam Slow Scan TV Status:
    The ARISS team has put together a 6-man team of engineers to go to Moscow in November 2003 (the ARISS team is made up of engineers from NASA, AMSAT and MAREXMG). The team will be performing a full end to end systems test of all of the new ISS-Ham Phase-2 hardware. The new
    hardware includes a Kenwood D700, power supplies cables and the SpaceCam
    software...»

  • ISS packet radio   14 years 38 weeks ago

    i agree this area IS the last interesting area left and seeing how it is static this does not say much !, here in UK i have been watching absolutely NOTHING happening on APRS which despite being a great idea makes you wonder what the point is of it , like so much it is completely underused and a victim of apathy.
    Lets hope the FIVE hams on board can somehow get this fixed very soon.

  • ISS packet radio   14 years 38 weeks ago

    I am also on the stand-by mode since January and waiting very anxiously to hear the new ISS packet station.

    I had the chance to send one packet to ISS at the end of summer. Soon after, the ISS tnc went dead again.

    Let´s hope our fresh Crew 8 will be into ham radio in their spare time and fix the packet station soon!

    The entire amateur radio community is in a "cold" period...
    I believe, from the general public point of view, we are the last fascinating part of .it
