JOTA and ISS
- This email came from Will Marchant, KC6ROL
"Frank Culbertson will try to make some general QSOs from the
International Space Station during JOTA.
Frank will be using the general QSO voice frequencies. Always
*listen* before transmitting. Wait until Frank calls for a new
contact before transmitting. If he comes back to someone else then
wait until he calls for a new contact. Otherwise you are just
interfering with someone else's QSO.
We *suggested* some passes to Frank. I've attached them below.
(These times will probably change by a couple of minutes, so run a
prediction for the day of the contact.) The ISS crew is very busy,
but are excited about supporting JOTA QSOs. Frank had packed his
scouting t-shirt and will be wearing that during the QSOs.
