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 426. (***)

There  have been rumors in the past indicating that the ISS was having direct 
contacts  on the 40 meter band.  There is no HF radio equipment on board and  
available yet.  The HF antenna is mounted.  Sometimes WA3NAN will  retransmit 
shuttle  audio.
