No packet, I'm just trying to contact NA1SS on voice.

Having no feedback (like I have on a trasponder) I don't know how to 
understand if I'm getting heard or not. I hoped someone else succedeed
in working NA1SS with a portable setup and could share some hints.
On LEOs trasponders my setup can be defined as "big gun" as I can
put 25W on a home made arrow like antenna. HI!

Someone else said 435.550, which one is right?

Indeed, I happened to talk to myself several times on SO-50 too some
months ago and I'm not in Hawaii.
