Congrats on getting through on the ISS. I'm not surprised I didn't, as I was running just my Kenwood TH-D7 with an extended whip antenna (a Diamond RH-77B) and only about 3 watts. I am surprised that I got through yesterday, as it was with the same setup! I guess nobody else knew what frequency they were on, because the downlink seemed very quiet then, in contrast to today's pass. Today was really active. I managed to copy a few downlinked packets on the Kenwood: N0JY-1, RS0ISS-4, WA7IXK-3, W6JSB-6, KO6TZ, and AI7W-1, but not yours.
