I'm becoming more of that opinion too, and am not the only VK to think so.
Here, it's not easy to blame congestion, as satellite activity over VK is much
lighter than over the Northern Hemisphere.  However, quite a few people I've
spoken with report no success with ISS (me included), and I only see a handful
of stations digi'd.

Downlink signals are generally very strong, with few dropped packets.
