RE: ISS for Field Day



Contacts WITH the ISS (normally voice) do not qualify for the satellite
bonus, just QSO credit. Contacts VIA the ISS (such as packet or crossband
repeat) do qualify for the satellite bonus since it is earth-sat-earth.

ISS is only expected to be active on 2 meters in Packet or on phone if the
crew is available.

Sooo,

 Conversing real-time via packet to another human on the earth is not 
earth-sat-earth?
