The short answer is yes, MixW works fine for making contacts via the ISS.

The long answer is that you will need to do your homework to properly
configure MixW.  To my knowledge, there is no tutorial.

I have mine setup and working properly.  A few hints:
1 - Set the packet modem properly (not setup for HF 300)
2 - Ensure your UNPROTO is set to ARISS
3 - Most importantly, make sure your callsign is configured in all the
right places (there are several)

I'd suggest you test the MixW 1200 packet setup on your local VHF
frequency (such as 144.39 MHz for APRS.)

I prefer using UISS but MixW will be fine.
