    OK dumb question. ISS is pretty spacious and at UHF and above a duplexer is a pretty small unit, or can be. Thus why not put up a single band repeater unit some time? I assumed that cross band on sats was a necessity due to the impracticality of putting proper isolation of TX and RX in a small package. But this seems to be one instance that is not so critical?

    Same here. I was looking right at it, bright in the sky, and no response. Doppler shifting receive didn't help. Same result on the second pass. Maintenance? KG8ZQ, Jerry

    Give "Heavens Above" a try. Free on the Google Pay Store.

    I think they turned it off to use it for a school contact? Not sure, but you can check to see if it's online here:
