Hey all
Since Doug Wheelock came down from the ISS contacting the International space station is hard work, hardy any voice comms now a days and the voice contacts that do happen are normally school skeds.

So there is a way you can still work the ISS and its via APRS
Here is a screen shot of a pass tonight.

Anyone can do this, you don't need any super dooper yagi or a rotator.
The power output was 10 watts via a Comet GP15N.

Another aspect of the diverse hobby we know as amateur radio.
