After several frustrating hours of trying to get the software set up 
properly, I finally managed to
get Packet Engine Pro and UISS working in time for a good pass of the 
ISS over the Southeastern US.

It was really something to see the software display stations and plot 
them on a map as the ISS passed
overhead. Even more so to see my own callsign digipeated through the 

Next up is to attempt a full fledged QSO through the ISS in real-time.

My special thanks to  Joanne Maenpaa, K9JKM whose paper on working 
through the ISS using software was
most helpful.

I used my Icom IC-910H with a Signalink interface instead of a hardware TNC.

Having a blast on the birds, and this just adds a whole other element of 
fun to the process.
