The ISS should have switched to V/u with PL after the school contact with Technopolis today (Sat, Jan 3). It should be in the V/u with PL configuration until Jan 17.

Subject: [amsat-bb] ISS L/V repeater attempt

I will try to be QRV on the next pass for RI (~6:34UTC). I'm working my way
back into satellites & need to get some use out of my 1.2GHz gear. Just
listened to the 04:50UTC pass & heard a 2 and an 8 call, but didn't get the
whole thing. It seemed like the squelch is set too high - hope my 45el loop
yagi & 10 watts will make it! I'll be manually tuning the rig for now... If
it works well, I'll connect the rig to a computer tomorrow!

Anyone have an idea how long the ISS repeater will be in L/V mode?
