Can't address the "nnnnnn" callsign issue but the ISS, ISS-5 and ISS-10 are plot points for the ISS on the www.ariss.net map and not packet callsigns. ISS is the current position, ISS-5 is where the ISS will be in 5 minutes and ISS-10 is where the ISS will be in 10 minutes based on the last refresh of the page. RS0ISS-1,-2,-3,-4,-5 and -11 are various ISS packet callsigns but using the alias ARISS works for all of the digi callsigns.

Subject: [amsat-bb]  iss packet invalid callsign nnnnnn

hi folks, just looking at the iss mheard callsign list I see one called
nnnnnnn. Does anyone know what or who this is? maybe just a silly error, or
maybe someone is using the iss without a call. we hams police our own if I'm
not mistaken. anyway why its here to observe and go over hows about some
explaining to us why there are serveral calls for the iss. I see in the
list, ISS, ISS-10,ISS-5, RSOISS-4, -4 I Think is the heard digi, but always
wondering what the other iss calls are. If anyone knows please post, thank
you much, kc8gkf-5 UISS User.

attached is the isscallsign heard list
