I am adding the ISS APRS space communications to the Pine Mountain Observatory STEM workshop this summer.

Using the Kenwood TM-D710G with a PC I can show that the packet sent to the ISS was digipeated through the ISS.

I would like not having to use a PC with the radio.
Therefore, not using a PC is there a TM-D710G setting that will show that the beacon was successfully digipeated through the ISS?

 QST February 2016 review of the Yaesu on page 52 
“ Whenever my FTM-100DR transmitted a beacon and detected that it had been relayed by a digipeater, I hear a series of three descending tones."

Has anyone used the Yaesu FTM-100DR APRS with the ISS and confirmed that it will tell you that the ISS digipeated the packet?

http://aprs.fi <http://aprs.fi/> and http://ariss.net <http://ariss.net/> work fine if another station receives the packet and forwards it to the APRS Internet System.
This depends upon another station which fine for a back up verification.
