145.825 simplex is for packet operations only. Voice frequencies have
not changed (144.490 up and 145.800 down for ITU regions 2 & 3 or
145.200 up and 145.800 down for ITU region 1)

Hi Ken...

Just a quick clarification...is the "voice" uplink for general amateur
use also 145.800 (the same as packet)?

Thanks for your efforts!

> Some short term reconfigurations to the Kenwood radio were attempted
with limited success. The preset channels that are used for many of the
to day operations are still inaccessible. The good news is that a few of
more commonly used configurations were able to be stored in the radio.
of the modes that was able to be partially restored was the packet
but the operations will be on 145.825 simplex. General voice
as well as configurations to support school contacts were also saved.
> A full restore of the radio is still required to return full
of the radio system and that process will require access to a computer
system and certification of the required software. This request is being
worked but will take a significant amount of time to get all parties
involved satisfied before the actual restoration can occur.

and keep listening just in case one of the ISS crew decide to give out a
"CQ" over your part of the world.
