I used to get a few lucky packets through PCSAT back when it was working well but up until a couple of weeks ago I hadn't heard the ISS in packet mode in some time. I'd say keep trying. Sometimes you'll get lucky and can get a packet through. You may need to go with a yagi, though...
Well I hear a lot (it was a W->NW->N pass at a 21 degreeish max
elevation) but I can't seem to beacon myself.
I have set my PATH to Others/ARISS. I see some have used
ARISS,WIDEN-n but I don't see the need.
Is there anything else I have to do? My beacon is set again to TX 30
seconds AUTO. I constantly try a Quick Beacon with the TH-72A but I
can't really tell if it send it.
Also, to send a message via the ISS what is the address?
I have been using RS0ISS-4 based on packets received.
Any comments before 4:20EST would be appreciated as I have one more
really good high elevation pass then...
