I am using a laptop and I am not able to "change location" from your home page once I login. It pulls up a google map but it is blank. I would like to enter my location (Biloxi, MS) so I can calculation the next ISS pass.
Can anyone help?
I have been trying to call the ISS without success. Of course I just have a base antenna, but the rig has 50W, and the comet antenna is up 38 feet. It seems hard to know when the astronauts would be listening to the rig to respond, like when are their their relaxation times?
My main question is, when I go to the Nasa website, and look up viewing opportunities for my town, it only lists one per day or less, but the locater app on your website shows it coming overhead much more often. What gives?

Expedition 28 spacewalkers Mike Fossum and Ron Garan are using the new In Suit Light Exercise (ISLE) protocol to prepare for today’s excursion, a technique first used on shuttle mission STS-134. Rather than “camping out” in the Quest Airlock at low air pressure last night, the pair waited until this morning to breathe pure oxygen through air masks for an hour as the air pressure inside Quest is lowered to 10.2 pounds per square inch.
