Not so fast... The ISS ham radio has just been powered off in
preparation for tomorrow's EVA.

ISS Packet is back on the air on 145.825 with PCSAT and ANDE,
giving over a dozen satellite access windows per day for packets
transmitted on 145.825.  

You can send your Satellite Simulated Emergency Test message via
any of these satellites as deomonstrated below by Paulo getting
his message out via the ISS:

The callsign after the qao construct is the callsign of the
SATgate that heard the packet and injected it into the global
APRS Internet channel.  When any APRS Igate injects any packet
into the APRS-IS, the path is modified with the QAO construct
and the callsign of the Igate station.
