Anyone have an update on the Packet station? Hardware failure, or just the need to schedule the time to reconfigure it back to normal operation. No doubt the team in plenty busy on their REAL jobs, just missing it. 🙂

Hello, we all miss it so much!
Last spot was about 20 days ago, so we think it’s not working. New packet module is onboard ISS, but installation depends on the crew’s busy schedule. Hope they’ll can do it soon!

It was shut off before the last Soyuz brought back 3 crewmembers. Don’t know if there is a problem, or maybe partial US federal government shutdown affects non-critical NASA operations.
Another set of equipment is on board and should be replaced by the end of Jan 2019.

The following is the latest I heard from Houston yesterday:
“Had already requested replacement but ran into a little logistics issue. Working to resolve (but could be quite a while).”
I’ll let everybody knows if I get more info about ISS APRS.
In the meantime, check the footage I made using my FT817ND and a 5/8 2m antenna inside my house two days ago https://twitter.com/luciangasparini/status/1082734364092440578?s=08

No, I haven’t but I’ll post once I get more news.

In the mean time, how many of you have hit NO-84 with an HT and Arrow style antenna?

Ciao Daniele! Grazie mille per la informazione.
Sto cercando un progetto che non sia così grande e pesante oppure piccolo e debole per utilizzare su 2m.
Forte abbraccio e buon fine settimana!

I tried myself last evening, and the system was down.

Hi Brian, I am receiving this on 145.550 not .825 – this is a local FM simplex talk channel and I assumed someone close to me was transmitting on the wrong frequency but got these decodes today identifying ISS.
Cheers
