    The ISS (Col Doug Wheelock) has been active on the crew contact repeater the past few days. Hot times for contacts appear to be between 20:00z - 00:00z. Frequncies are below ( +/- for doppler).


    FM VOICE for ITU Region 1: Europe-Middle East-Africa-North Asia
    • Downlink 145.800
    • Uplink 145.200
    FM VOICE for ITU Region 2&3: North and South America-Caribbean-Greenland-Australia-South Asia
    • Downlink 145.800
    • Uplink 144.490
    Good luck everyone!!

    I am new to this whole satellite thing. Can I get some clarification on what "20:00z" represents? Think I will do some listening rather than talking.

    20:00z = 2000 UTC

    Looks like the next pass at 22:57 UTC may be a good one, if you are in the footprint - the ISS crew was active in Italy about 15-30 minutes ago!!

    HRD satellite tracker say up link is 437.800

    I heard Col. Doug Wheelock, but I could not get through... It is hard to tell since you cannot hear the downlink. There is another pass at 00:03 UTC.

    Congratulations!! Some Hams put a lot of time into trying to get a QSO with the ISS - it is a pretty major achievement!
