Is a cross band repeat radio needed to listen?
Search the Google Play Store for the app "ISS Detector" Excellent app not only for the ISS but other amateur radio satellites as well.
or this web site :
Thank you very much! I checked it, and it answered all my questions. Hams helping Hams, you can't beat it!
All you need to listen to this signal is a radio that will receive 437.800 MHz FM. KG8ZQ Jerry
Very good news for the ISS users so my question its possible now the connection with the PMS system its very necessary in order to make contacts outside of the footprint best regards to all from Cuba. Noel
I believe the message system has been removed entirely from the new system.
Bad new PMS its the only way to work all the world from satellite using the PMS I work Greece, Italy, Israel,Russia... was very fun for me I need some link to read all about the actual system like frequencies and how to operate with the new setup thank you
Question that I don't see in the comments..
What is everyone using for an antenna? And can you hear traffic with a regular mobile or HT rig?
If you plan on working it, you'll need a directional antenna for best results (most use Arrow IIs or Elks). With a decent pass (low usage, good elevation, polarities match up), you should be able to do it with a standard HT whip, as well. I haven't tried it, but I've seen reports of some that have been successful.
