Hi Patrick, might the ISS packet radio be off due to the cargo transfer?

73, Ted
p.s. I'll be listening anyway

It looks like we have a chance to do double-hop packet through the ISS and
NO-84, around 2209 UTC. ISS is passing to my west, and NO-84 is to the
southeast. Using SatPC32, it looks like the two should see each other in
orbit. I'm going to give this a try, sending my packets first through ISS
using its RS0ISS call, as it will be higher and easier to get into. I'm
hoping that something makes it to - and through - NO-84.
Even though I had tweeted that I would use ARISS for the second part of my
path, I'll go with APRSAT instead. I can change it on the fly, if needed.

I'll watch the usual web sites, to see what makes it through each
digipeater. Please let me know if you see WD9EWK-9 make it through both.
