 A: 145.99 for ISS, 145.825 for PCsat

>Q: How can I know if my e-mail will be received by the ISS?
 A: If you see "MY MESSAGE" flash on the front panel of the radio, then
    you heard your packet digipeated, therefore some IGate somewhere also
    probably heard it and so it will probably be delivered.

>Q: Do I leave the packet path as RELAY,WIDE?
 A: THat will still work on PCsat, but for ISS  you use NOCALL. To
    minimize hassle for users, PCsat also supports NOCALL too..

>Q: It would be very appreciated if you could write a detailed article on
    ... sending an e-mail with a TH-D7....
 A: Simply enter "EMAIL" for who you are sending TO: and then enter their
    email address as the first word of the message.  That is all there is
    to it.
