[amsat-bb] ISS Unattended Beacon Theory (UBT) - PROVE ME WRONG!

I worked an ISS pass earlier tonight on packet.  I copied 18 stations
digipeated via the ISS. However, only one of them responded to any
kind of live, keyboard-to-keyboard action.  The other stations seemed
very dedicated to letting the world know their name and city every 1-2

Surely my theory that 80% of the stations are unattended beacons, pass
after pass, must be wrong.

Please, prove me wrong at 0200Z 19-April, and show me that people have
two-way QSO's and not just beacon their name and city continuously for
24 hours.
