Bob,

Just had a visible 63 degree passover of the ISS a few minutes ago here 
in IL. I monitored 145.825 and also 145.800 on my D7A but heard zilch. 
According to the ariss.net page, the ISS hasn't been heard in over 6 
days. Any thoughts on this? Is the digipeater shutoff for shuttle ops in 
the next few days? Also, which frequency should I be monitoring for the 
ISS here in the US? I always thought it was 145.800 (per Bob's website), 
but the AMSAT page also shows an APRS digipeater on 145.825. Thanks!

Stan
