Thanks for working me, My First APRS QSO via the ISS. I also heard KK6QMS & W5PFG and sent them messages, but got no responses, Don't know if they heard me or not or if it was just too busy, but either way I finally got on the board and That makes it a successful day of ham radio for me.. Now if I can only find my downlink on an SSB bird........

Hi Steve!

It was nice to see you on the 1553 UTC ISS pass earlier
this morning. Even though you said some packets came in
through your local APRS network, the ariss.net web site
clearly shows packets from me to you, and from you to
me, through the ISS digipeater.

The later pass around 1722 UTC had a good amount of live
keyboard activity. I worked K7TEJ across town from me in
the other Phoenix-area grid DM33, KK6QMS in California,
and W5PFG in Texas. I heard KG6FIY in California late in
the pass, but couldn't get an exchange with him before LOS.
