I'm in a very similar situation Richard. Got all the right software 
downloaded. I'm receiving APRS packets and can see them on a map. I can 
receive packets from ISS.
But getting any of the programs to talk to UISS so I can transmit is a 
mystery to me.
If you get some workable info, please post it on this BB!
