iss doing voic qso 1825z pass

i just worked the iss on the 1825z pass. he was using na1ss and was looking 
for a friend. when he found the friend, he moved to channel c7. i hunted 
around but didn't find it. i sure was lucky to get him right at aos for me before 
his friend was in the window.

didn't think they would be on and did not have my real audio encoder 
working. bummer. 

that was a much better thrill for me than getting the packet racket to work. 
also, i had the icom 821h set to try the packet with 2 or 3 watts (the lowest it 
would go) so i made the voice contact with only a couple watts.
