Using ARISS vs. RS0ISS in digi path

This morning I decided to use ARISS in my digi path instead of RS0ISS. I was able to transmit and receive beacons but my new position did not show on (GPS was on) Is there a difference using ARISS or RS0ISS? Should I add both to my digi path?

Roland KG7FOP

EDIT: So last pass o ISS I used both in digi path and it seemed to work but if anyone could still answer the my question I would be greatful.

Help with Packet Software


I am trying to set up my Icom IC-7000 to do packet radio with the ISS. I have successfully connected the radio to the computer, but my trouble lies with the software. I was searching online and I've seen that UISS is the easiest software to use. (According to the Website) However when I started this whole thing up, it keeps confusing me and It led me to a dead end. Are any of you aware of a simple and easy program to use for doing packet radio. If so, please contact me and help me set this up.

ISS mailbox / PMS / BBS

Hello ISS radio fans,

I have been monitoring and I run a RX sat gate 2e1avx-10

I have noticed in the last few days a few attempts by various stations to connect to the mailbox at rs0iss-1.

This is a great achievement and concept, however it has a huge impact on those using the digipeater.

As I understand it the preferred method is unproto messages.

When you connect its disables the digi and can lock access for up to 30 minutes.

Please be mindful of other users and the impact you may have on them and the system.
