The APRS mode TX/RX is in the APRS menu.  There is a separeate TX/RX setting for PACKET mode in the radio menu.  You maybe using the wrong one.

With the ISS seemingly in that sort of mode, this would seem to be the configuration to use.  APRS menu 2-M gives me that choice, but when I have either of the spilt modes selected (Tx-A, Rx-B, or Rx-A, Tx-B), I can't turn on APRS mode.  Packet turns on, but not APRS.
