I wish they will switch to 9600bd.

1200 takes ages to do anything useful.

Hello 4S7AVR,

ok we have received your suggestion about Crew activity on Region 3.

We will send this to the Crew.

Agreed that 9600 would be better as long as it is not at the expense of 1200.

Many, many people have 1200 baud tnc's and they can hook up to virtually any radio/ht. 9600 requires a newer radio or modification to an older radio (if possible) to get on the air, not to mention a 9600 baud tnc.

As long as they support 1200 backwards I'm all for 9600!

They once did it on MIR.

9600 db / UHF. Unfortunately doppler was a problem for most operators (I remember night passes with only myself working the station..) so they came back to 1200.

What they really need is something different from AX25 wich avoids packet data collision between "far" groundstations.

Re: What would you like to see next on ISS?

I would like to see HF so that more people

can get in on the action, I say that because

I run an AMSAT Net and would like to feed the audio out on the 2m Repeater that I use for the net. Right now it only includes

the Amateur Satellite UO-14.

Had to vote for SSTV on board ISS.

We had so much fun with MIR and generated so much interest in the demonstrations I gave that it would be sad if this mode of operation wasn't given at least a few months trial period.

Robot36 sstv repeater??

Keep it simple and accessible to all new starters...pictures from space...now that's cool as my daughters inform me.

Look forward to "seeing" you all in the future via ISS?

Great site, keep up the good work.

73 to all

Eddie.
