During some docking activities and other work on the ISS, the ARISS radios are required to go silent in support of the activity.

The next power-off period is coming up.

Outage begins around 18:15 UTC on Friday 16 February 2024 and is expected to end around 14:00 UTC on Saturday 17 February 2024. This will effect all ARISS equipment on the ISS.
