The ISS radio system currently supports only one mode at a time. The current L/v configuration is scheduled to be active until Saturday, Jan 3.
And I don't think you can't get into the 1.2 GHz uplink without a yagi ;)

Hi Gregg,

Yes, I have worked the ISS APRS from the D7, but I thought the 145.800 voice downlink was paired with a 1.2 ghz uplink this week.  I didn't think to try the other modes.  Are they up too?
