The ISS is not a satellite. Satellite is an unmanned object the receives
and retransmits but the ISS is manned. When you make a contact with them,
your signal is not retransmitted. It terminates at the station.
Seems like the crossband repeater would be an exception but I can find no
evidence that it is.
