REPEATER on ISS.... is active now or ? info

G7HCE say in other post here:

"Some stations were able to work through the crossband repeater in between the retransmissions but the crew changed the schedules and switched them off early to save battery life but the TM-D710 was left on in Crossband repeat and groundstations were able to work through 437.050 uplink and 145.800 downlink. "

1) But this REPATER ....NOW is active or off ? (17 july )

2) this repeater is abord ISS or in an Tabusha sat ?

3) for EUROPE the upload frq is 437.050 or different ?

Hi,

The D710 crossband repeater was only on for the duration of the 2 Russian CubeSats which were scheduled for the greeting message retransmissions July 4-8 only and is now currently off. Although the CubeSats were turned off early by the crew to save battery power the crossband repeater was left on for the remainder of the test period until July 8-10:30 UTC.
