Hi Bob,

Good thought, but I was on the right menu.  And when I do it for the packet mode, the problem moves there.  

BUT!!!!  It looks like I didn't wait long enough to see the packets show up on the ARISS site, or get propogated through the email system.  I just got the two messages I sent to myself via the ISS packet system.

With the ISS seemingly in that sort of mode, this would seem to be the configuration to use.  APRS menu 2-M gives me that choice, but when I have either of the spilt modes selected (Tx-A, Rx-B, or Rx-A, Tx-B), I can't turn on APRS mode.  Packet turns on, but not APRS.
