7:00 – 8:00pm on the 147.090 (+ / 100.0 Hz) W1QUI repeater
Join us this evening, September 17th, at 7:00PM on the 147.090 repeater, for our monthly meeting on-the-air .
On the agenda, we’ll be asking if participants have ever tried to communicate via an amateur radio satellite or with astronauts on an orbiting space craft. We also plan on cutting the meeting short, at around 7:25pm, to allow participants to attempt to contact each other, or other, via the cross-band repeater on the International Space Station (ISS), as it will be passing over Maine during that time.
Here’s the details of the ISS pass and repeater frequencies, so you can program your radios and join us:
The ISS will pass from SSW to ENE between 7:25 and 7:32pm, reaching a maximum altitude of 21 degrees, at around 7:29pm.
ISS cross-band repeater frequencies:
Uplink: 145.990 (PL: 67.0 Hz)
Downlink: 437.800 (+/- Doppler)
