ARISS gets radio donation to replace failed Ericcson radio that failed in October 2016
Per Amateur Radio Newsline broadcast dated Januay 6, 2017
 Kenwood has donated a TM-D710GA dualband radio to replace the failed radio so ISS can get back on the air on 145.825 with APRS.  A special power supply has also being built to enable the radio to be used in any ISS module.  There is a cost of $200,000 for production and certification of the radio before it can be flown and be placed in service on ISS.  
Please donate to ARISS on the AMSAT website.

Per a AMSAT BB post February 19, 2017 after the successful launch of the recent SpaceX Dragon mission there is a replacement Ericcson handheld on board to replace the failed radio.  This means that ISS VHF APRS activity will resume in the near future.  This is a temporary fix until the Kenwood radio can is ready for the station.

New FM Satellite was launched from ISS on Thursday, May 25th.  LilacSat-1.
