Today`s fly over Haddon Heights, NJ

Wow what a site, at first I thought I was watching ISS fly over, but it was off track a bit and rather small, then I realized I was watching another smaller satellite much higher up, then I looked to the SW and there was ISS right on cue, it was beautiful, a perfectly clear nite here in South Jersey, I love my Spot the Station emails.

Satgate server for


I wish to make satgate for ISS packet forwarding using UI-View32. Problem is that I can not connect to these servers:

After doing little researching on internet, I found that others also had similar problems and servers might be down, but no word about which server to use. Which is current working server?

Hi All, Is it my imagination or is the ISS signal strength getting worse?

Cheers Dave UZN

UISS/SatGate Setup

Sorry this is so long. I am not that knowledgeable about APRS and what I am trying to do which is tie UISS to SatGate to the Internet. I thnk I know the path from the time I send a packet to the ISS until it gets to the Internet, but not sure of parameters to make it happen.

My main questions/concerns
- I cannot connect to the APRS Host Server - SatGate.APRSIS.NET - See Below
- What should go in Filter on APRS IS Server Panel in SatGate?
- How do I know the correct port is being used by the correct module? - See Below
