I know that Russians use their radio only for voice and SSTV. Are APRS uses some of cubesats? And on which freqeunce they work? Few weeks later I read that there isnt 145,800MHz but something about 437MHz...

Thanks for complete information and have a nice days with your families :)

Current ISS packet radio

The current packet radio is an another Ericsson HT. It is a UHF version of the VHF radio that stopped working in October, the frequency is 437.550 MHz. The current radio was already on board & stowed, when the VHF Ericsson went down the crew simply swapped it out for the UHF one.

Happy Holidays!
