Re: Messages from ISS


the time necessary to connect to RS0ISS, send a 200 bytes message, list
messages and logoff the ISS PMS System is about 60-70 seconds using a good
station with tnc parameters configured properly.
I downloaded messages because passes are now in the night.
This night I connected PMS when was at 2 degrees over horizon (over Africa)
and max 5 degrees for the pass. No stations over Europe active or not heard
by ISS, but was at 03:13 UTC.
Two times I done a list of messages only reading frames from ISS saved
automatically during other amateur radio's connections.
Commander Valery Korzun sent me a message to my e-mail address last
week saying about messages sent to several amateur radio operators.
Valery had time to reply on September 2 to 20 messages and this weekend
about 25 messages but the majority had not been still read.

But seeing these posts have caused problem, this is latest send with this
