Hi Vince,

I would disagree with that statement. While I don't have time every week to
do that, whenever I use the ISS APRS, I have been able to connect with one
or two stations (pending time and orbit) using UISS to have a quick
exchange. It is all within the operator and willingness to respond. The key
is to respond to a specific station in the beginning using their callsign
as listed by UISS.

Just checked on ARISS.net and folks have been chatting on the last pass
even today.

73, Stefan, VE4NSA
