Digipeat, I seem to be missing something.



Hello from CN89, happy 4th.

I am having trouble getting to digipeat properly on ISS, this is the setup:-
FT736R - Antenna's M² long boom.
DSP2232 running port 1 1200 baud
Pentium 166, running either APRS or Packcom
Frequency - 145.990 uplink and 145.800 downlink.

WATCHING on another system on either 145.990 ( to check that I am sending
OK)
and listening on 145.800 to see if I can see my return packet (no luck)

Listening on both and getting GOOD signals, the second system is my HH on a
ground plane.

Transmitting using Packcom, "K" and press enter, press enter again
Listening on the input (145.990) RX my uplink get:- VE7AHX>NOCALL:

Transmitting using APRS, press "XP"
Listening on the input (145.990) get:-
VE7AHX>NOCALL:=4913.15N/12240.63W-000/000 Peter. CN89pf

But on either of these trials I get nothing back from ISS
Heard and saw quite a few digi's:-
K5OE>NOCALL*>CQ:=2945.80N/09541.98W Happy 4th!
K5OE>NOCALL*>CQ:QSL W6JRY

    Ok what am I missing, got to be something I am not doing.
Thanks for the help.
Peter.
