IC-9100 APRS digipeating via ISS -USB only!

This is a tip for all you IC-9100 users :-)

Two years ago, I wrote a short paper outlining the use of the IC-9100 with an external interface (see file section of the IC-9100 Yahoo group – _iss_ic9100.pdf) to dipgipeat via the International Space Station (ISS).

Soundmodem packet software amazing good!!!!!

Hello ISS radio friends,

I have tested soundmodem packet software.
This soundcard software works standalone and also with UISS and UIview (a bit same as AGW driver).
It is really amazing to see that soundmodem decodes weak packets with a bit noise often good.
This software works much better as my expensive TNC modem!!!
I discovered one problem using UISS the Connect button is not active
(in the LAN mode) to connect the ISS BBS.
I shall look more in the settings if I dont can fix it I will ask the programmers.
But the UISS buttons Text/data, Message and Mheard works fine.

Recommended equipment?

Hi everybody.

What kind of portable antenna for handheld scanners do you recommend when I want to try to listen in on ISS?

I have a Uniden Bearcat 3500XLT and it should be enough for listen in, but I'm not sure that my current antenna is good enough. It's a small Midland 144/430 MHz antenna.

Hi Forum, I'm a newbie and saw tonight (2014-08-08) that something is following the Station. Google didn't help me, so what could that be? Is it the ATV "Georges Lemaitre"?
