    Having hosted an ARISS contact myself earlier this year, I am well
aware of direct contacts
between the astronauts and someone on the ground.

    The relevant part of the question was the part about the QSO being

    If you are aware of a success (or a failed attempt) I would be
interested in knowing
which astronaut and which amateur radio satellite was used.

    Lastly, does anyone have a technical references for correcting
calculating the Doppler
for a QSO from ISS through a satellite to the ground?  (And no, you can't
just change
the tracking program's ground station latitude/longitude every second to
match the ISS
satellite subpoint.)

Thanks and 73,
