Is PCSAT2 off until removal from the ISS?  Understanding that it must be
silent during EVA, I was wondering if it might be turned on for a while
after EVA #2.

PCSAT2 on ISS continues to operate its FM voice downlink on
437.975 on most passes during waking hours.  Since the Shuttle
has been delayed for several days, and passes are 20+ minutes
earlier each day, this results in passes during the Naval
Academy's morning classroom hours in the USA area next week.

For EASTERN USA stations, we want to make a special FM voice
contact with other schools.  The 0903 EDT and 1036 EDT passes on
Tuesday the 12th will occur during our students satellite lab
period and we hope to contact other schools or VIP ARISS

If you want to set up a station during that class time, let us
know so we can coordinate.
