With all the talk about ISS, I decided to try. I heard Col Wheelock on 
two passes but he never acknowledged my call. Then the pass today at 
22:30 I was calling "KB8LFA Jeremy in Akron, Ohio"... He came back and 
said "Got you loud and clear Akron, We are now passing ..."

It might not happen all the time and probably not at the exact time I 
transmit but how do I know there was not a stronger station saying 
Akron, Ohio as well? Is this what constitutes a contact w/NA1SS?
