Re: ISS just passed overhead - lots of packets heard. Nonedecoded.

Hi Jim,

There are now quite a few of us Jim. Without taking a peek at my captured 
data, I can think of 6 ZL callsigns who appear on the ISS.   3 VKs also 
appear on those passes visible to both ZL and eastern VK. There are plenty 
of ZL's reading this list, but many are cautious about posting.

The ISS is a great tool for demonstrating satellites to the skeptical. It's 
not AO-40, but once people have made successful contacts via the ISS digi, 
their interest in amateur satellites rachets up several notches.

Sil - ZL2CIA
