Congratulations to Mike Fincke KE5AIT!  He now  holds the record for the most 
ARISS school contacts on a single expedition as  well as the most for 
multiple missions.   (***)

Crossband repeater and packet have been active!  Don’t forget to do Doppler 
correction for the crossband repeater!
Don’t  forget the keyword here is Repeater.  Repeaters have the FM capture  
effect.  Strongest into the machine wins momentarily.  

Expedition 18 has now set the record for ARISS contacts by an  expedition. 

Total number of ARISS ISS to earth school contacts is  424. (***)
Total number of ARISS supported terrestrial contacts is  22.

There  have been rumors in the past indicating that the ISS was having direct

available yet.  The HF antenna is mounted.  Sometimes WA3NAN will  retransmit 
shuttle  audio.
