The ARISS program is pleased to announce that the amateur radio equipment aboard the International Space Station is now operating in cross-band repeat mode.
We realize that many of you will miss the packetmode
However, cross-band repeat allows further experimentation of the ISS amateur radio system.
The downlink for this operating mode remains the same, so listen for the station on 145.800 MHz.
The new uplink frequency is 437.800 MHz. All frequencies are subject to Doppler shifting.
ARISS is an international educational outreach program with US participation from NASA, AMSAT and the American Radio Relay League.
ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with
crewmembers on-board the International Space Station.
Teachers, parents and communities experience, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS can energize youngsters interest in science, technology, and learning.
