Astronauts Wilmore, Virts and Cristoforetti will be performing three spacewalks over the next few weeks and will impact some of the amateur radio operations on the International Space Station (ISS). Spacewalks have been scheduled for February 20, 24 and March 1 and will have the amateur radios turned off to assure the safety of the crewmembers working outside of the ISS. The series of spacewalks will prepare cables and communications gear for new docking ports that will allow future crews launched from Florida on U.S. commercial spacecraft to dock to the space station. The spacewalks will be the 185th, 186th and 187th in support of space station assembly and maintenance.
