I personally haven't tried to do APRS from an HT on the ISS. I used to get a few lucky packets through PCSAT back when it was working well but up until a couple of weeks ago I hadn't heard the ISS in packet mode in some time. I'd say keep trying. Sometimes you'll get lucky and can get a packet through. You may need to go with a yagi, though...
