First full day on ISS

Today (Oct 15), Richard is scheduled to speak with his father in Moscow and the Mayor in Austin, Texas. He has installed the VC-H1 in the window and some very nice Earth views are being sent down on 145.800 in Robot-36. He has been heard making general contacts (when time permits) on the same downlink but using the standard 145.20 uplink over ITU region 1 (Europe, Africa and Russia) or 144.49 uplink over ITU regions 2&3 (everwhere else) . During the crew sleep cycle, the radio should be switched to packet operations on 145.825.
