FYI, YOU MIGHT WANNA TUNE in 145.800 MHz on
your FM transceiver or scanner radio to listen to
the international repeater as it flies overhead
in the afternoon or evening.

A given pass is less than ten minutes, so you will
also need to know when it is flying by.  See below
for all the scoop you need to know to check it out!

Helpful Newbee Notes: You may need to add or delete
spaces in the header line of the pass list below to
make the labels line up over the column properly.
The dates and times (in hh:mm:ss) are given in EST
-- NOT UTC -- for the greater Washington-Baltimore
area.  You may disregard the "Between" column of
info.  (I myself don't find it very useful.)

Height is given in miles for the sub-satellite
point, not your range to the ISS.  When listening
for the first time, don't worry about tuning for
Doppler unless you are really picky, and then just
tune for "best signal" at leave it at that for the
moment.

If you hear the chatter and enjoy it then tell
your friends!

Cheers,

Pat Kilroy, N8PK

BID: $ANS-034.03

The ISS cross band repeater is on and functioning as of this
announcement.  It is on Uplink 437.800 MHz FM, Downlink 145.800
MHz FM.  It is quite strong and can be heard well on a simple
setup.  I read a report that "someone" called CQ and there was
no-one coming back to him.  Listen and give it a shot.

[ANS thanks Tony, K2MO, for the above information]
