ISS is just like any other satellite when it is operating in a relay mode such as the packet digi or voice repeater. Make your standard exchange of information necessary to confirm a contact.

Subject: [amsat-bb] ISS digi QSO

What requirements are there for a valid QSO over the ISS digi?  Is it the same 
as AO-51 where it is just an exchange of callsign and grid?  Can it be done 
through the Comment text of an APRS HT like the VX8GR or THD72?  Or is a tnc 
needed or software like UISS?
