Re: APRS on ISS, the saga continues



Hello Bill,

I just tried to get my own aprs packets relayed by ISS, and it worked.
I used the following path : "APRS,RS0ISS-3", with an overall power of 20 w
in a VHF/UHF antenna. The situation of the antenna is very poor.

I think that you aren't alone wishing to communicate via ISS ;o) Keep trying
!

73.

Carl.
