Yes, we have set the SuitSat-1 downlink to be the same as the Packet 

uplink.  The ARISS/Human Spaceflight team have a very limited set of 

frequencies in the 2 meter OSCAR sub-band (145.80-146 MHz).  145.99 is one

of them.


As Miles Mann, WF1F, described, we will be reconfiguring the Kenwood D700E

from packet mode.  Our tentative plan is to set the D700 into a repeater 

mode with that will enable the ISS radio to repeat the Suitsat audio on 70

cm, specifically, 437.80 MHz.


All hams are requested to refrain from uplinking packet (or voice) on 

145.99 during Suitsat operations.  This will allow you and your local 

neighbors to better hear the SuitSat downlink.  SuitSat will only be 

operational for a few days.....we all would like to get the most of its 

operations.  So please due your best to abide by this plan.


We will continue to provide late-breaking information on SuitSat plans on 

the following web sites.  Please check them often.  And get your stations 

ready to copy the audio, voice telemetry, and SSTV picture.
