>> Just purchased a used Kenwood TH-D72A HT. Hoping to use it along with an Arrow antenna to make more satellite contacts while traveling. While I primarily expect to use it to make voice contacts on the FM birds, I’m also interested in making packet contacts through the International Space Station.

>> Grateful for all suggestions.
