THAT'S GREAT - Heard that he was looking for a KP4 a few days ago..

And I've been trying for a year :-( - And I helped design the Comm and 
GNC/CMG Systems + worked with the first 2M antenna setup with W5LFL back 
in 80's - My only wish (at my age) is to make one voice QSO with the 
station (not through - done that! :-) )

The only time I ever heard them doing ISS to Ground QSO's was when I was 
sitting in a Walmart Parking lot last year and couldn't configure the 
TMG-707 fast enough! :-(
