The ISS crew uses 143.625 when in range of Russian Ground sites.
Sometimes this is because they don't have TDRSS comm. and other is to
coordinate Russian only activities. The only other time 143.625 is uses
is for the Emergency communication checkout once a month over N.

I am interested to know how often the crew uses the 143.625 freq. When
Anousheh is on 145.800, also check 143.625. In theory, when 143.625 is
transmitting, the ham reciever will go deaf.
We had a similar problem on Mir. When 143.625 was on the air, i had to
run "Excessive ERP" at close range to get into the Ham station. I fixed
the Mir problem by installing a filter from DCI, that had a special
Notch for 143.625.
