APRS from /mm


I have just heard a nice strong pass from the ISS and I believed that I had got APRS packets up to the station using my FT1XD and an arrow antenna.

Only problem is that nothing shows up on either or

I'm wondering if this is because when it can see me, it cannot see any land.

My position was (approx) 21deg 59'S, 176deg 34'W.

Looks like they ran the first session on Thursday (April 14) in PD180 starting about 15:00 UTC and ending at 18:00 UTC. The second session is scheduled to start about 14:00 UTC and end about 19:00 UTC on Friday (April 15). Looks like we will have to wait and see if they stick with PD180 or change to PD290.
