UPDATE - QSLing Packet on the ISS

okay, guys...let's go for it. iss qso's will be accepted towards arrl awards as 
long as you heed the rules.

Hi Bruce,

This is our interpretation:

"Band and mode for Satellite DXCC, VUCC and WAS are irrelevant. There 
are no band or mode categories for Satellite DXCC, VUCC, or WAS. For a 
contact made through an ISS repeater device, you only get credit toward a 
satellite award, not a band or mode award."

I refer you to Section I of the DXCC rule 1(m) and rule 6, which states:

1(m). Satellite: Contacts must be made using satellites since March 1, 1965.
Confirmations must indicate satellite QSO. 

6. All contacts must be made with amateur stations working in the authorized
amateur bands or with other stations licensed or authorized to work amateurs.
Contacts made through "repeater" devices or any other power relay methods 
(other than satellites for Satellite DXCC) are invalid for DXCC credit.
