I made contact tonight, but he got my call sign wrong. I'll have to try again! :)

That's Awful!

That's awful! I feel bad for you and all the other stations he works but for whom he apparently doesn't copy the call sign. I hope you got a recording on your side of things.

It would be interesting to hear a recording or two of some of the passes from the perspective of the ISS operator. I bet it is a nightmare trying to untangle the calls.

I know how you feel....

I too had the same experience - he got "Victor Alpha Three Something Foxtrot Mobile" from me but not the full call. I had a business colleague in the car at the time and was trying to convince him that I really could talk direct to the Space Station!!

Oh well - I'll try again....

Finally got a confirmed callsign back from NA1SS - 16th Nov at 15.31 EST.

The first attempt was as above; the second Doug came back with "VE3QF mobile" instead of "VA3QF mobile"; the third he got me correct as "VA3QF mobile"
