It has been discussed on a Ballooning list and Greg at bigredbee has said he
could easily implement at least a 144.390 to 144.800 switch. ISS would
probably require a path switch also.
The Tracker CSNP used is frequency agile, no hardware redesign required just
some coding.
Which would also stop the need to message lots of people in Europe to switch
frequency, not that that is not fun.

Heck, if one had frequency-agile equipment plus scripting capability,
transmit on ISS frequency, then North American APRS frequency, then European
frequency(s), then African frequency(s).  Lather, rinse, repeat.
