[amsat-bb] ISS digital packets

Hello all

I have recently been unsuccessful in sending digital packets to the ISS
since the change in radios on the station.

I use an Elk with my Yaesu VX8DR and the path I use is ARISS. I have
recently tried adding a WIDE to that path to see if I could get gated, but
have been largely unsuccessful except for one day, but haven't been able to
get back on, even with a relatively high pass.

Does anybody know if the path has changed since they are now using the
Ericsson instead of the Kenwood, or if there are any significant changes I
can make?. It could possibly be just the 5 watt HT can't do the job with
the Ericsson.

Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
