[amsat-bb] ARISS

Hi all,

I've been trying to work stations on ARISS as it goes over the USA, and 
don't seem to be getting anywhere. I hear the ARISS exactly when my 
tracking software says I should. I switch to converse mode and send a 
"Hi". I see a number of stations sending packets, I attempt to contact 
them without results.

I used K9JKM's PDF to help set things up (very helpful). My unproto is 
CQ VIA ARISS. I looked at the bottom of www.ariss.net to see if the 
ARISS was hearing me, I didn't see my call, nor did I see the other 
calls I heard. Perhaps it takes a while to appear.

Is there another way to see if things are setup okay on my end?

I'm using Winpack on Windows 7 to a MFJ-1278T to a IC-706MKIIG connected 
to a vertical antenna mounted at 50' (working on a better antenna, hope 
to have it up soon).
