Hey all, I have recently gotten back into Amateur radio and find it fascinating that I could speak with thr ISS crew. I've noticed a whole lot more "non visible" passes than "visible" on certain tracking sites. Is it possible to make contact with the crew during a "non visible" pass? Also, generally how often do you guys find the crew to be active on the radio these days?
Kenneth when os possible tell to astronauts open the radio squelch.
I think this is a problem with TM D700 Onboard.
In two pass i received two frames and this passes got a high elevation degree.

Bingo!. Look like tha ISS is back!.( 145.825) is tme to warm up my radio , it has been silent for about 3 weeks.
How do I upload ISS audio to the ISS Fan Club site?
this site could defently use an online chat it would be a great idea for our website please respond to this tell me what you think i think it would be a great thing for this website so everyone could talk to each other about what they have found out about iss if you agree please respond
Has anyone heard how long the Packet Radio will be turned off on the ISS. I have been away from the Radio for awhile and just getting back into it again? K8JMH
I've heard the ISS making school contacts lately. When the ISS identifies as NA "i" SS instead of NA "one" SS, does that make a legitimate contact?
Does IFC have design badges to those persons who have IAA?
Can we use on facebook profile picture, car stickers and others.
I was lucky enough to have been listening when Suni was talking on the radio as the ISS orbited over. I heard her calling a Florida station a number of times, then made contact. I only heard her side of the QSO, but I recorded what I did hear.
That audio is on my website if you care to listen.
Sure wish the packet digi would go back active, I miss making contacts with other humans at keyboards as the ISS is in range.

What is the best software to track the ISS..
I am hoping that it is free. I am trying to figure this out to help some young kids get interested in Ham Radio..
They all have PC's..
The first is a web based application, the satscape is a Java based download application, the last is also a web based program.
I used one,, then the next, then the next.
