The ISS is not a satellite.  Satellite is an unmanned object the receives
and retransmits but the ISS is manned.  When you make a contact with them,
your signal is not retransmitted.  It terminates at the station.  

Seems like the crossband repeater would be an exception but I can find no
evidence that it is.
