I forget the command...maybe PASSALL? Typically the default settings only display complete verified packets...I think if you turn it on it will display partial and unverified packets which allows you to see everything received even if  incomplete and can you can figure out the content.

Subject: [amsat-bb] Improving performance of packet communications through the ISS

I've got my Icom IC-910H working with it's SignaLink interface, through 
Packet Engine Pro and UISS. I've been able to receive lots of stations
through the ISS, and managed to have short QSOs with a couple. Fun!

But I notice that this combination seems to do a poor job of decoding 
weak signals. I hear packets in the speaker that seem plenty strong 
enough to decode, but they don't show up on UISS.

I'm wondering if I used a traditional TNC, such as a Kantronics unit, if 
I'd get better performance? Does anyone in the group have any experience 
along these lines? Or could someone provide other suggestions on how to 
improve my ability to communicate through the ISS?

Thanks in advance. Having a ball on the birds.
