And on the digital birds, do not overlook the challenge for everyone to practice their emergency Satellite Email capability. See www.aprs.org/sset.html for the Satellite Simulated Emergency Test.
All it takes is one packet via ISS to send an email to anyone on the planet. PCSAT and GO32 are not currently useable. To confirm success, the easiest is to send the email to yourself.
You can also confirm it under the message column on he www.ariss.net web page.
