Alaska after 2 months.  THey have APRS and will try to report their

> The callsign used is ZZ2KKL.
> Can you help me helping them to use APRS during this travel?
> Thanks.

We only have a minute or so as ISS comes above the USA southern horizon
before the uplink gets jammed, so our southernmost stations need to be
listening at the horizon...  ALex will have his station Igating any
downlink heard from Brazil.
