I also made my first contact through it today:


While I was making the above video, I randomly picked up the digipeater in
my apartment:

Recently, the old VHF Ericsson handheld used for the digipeater on the ISS
died and it was replaced with an equivalent UHF one. This is my first time
digipeating through it.

I also tried to make my first APRS satellite contact. I successfully sent a
message to the digipeater for another ham, KM4SYN, but he didn't receive it
from the ISS. He did however receive one of my beacon packets and you can
see me on his map.

The "Programming TH-D72 for ISS Digipeater" video will be uploaded next
I made this recording on November 2nd, 2016, shortly after the UHF
digipeater was activated.

Thanks for watching!

The music at the end is Cybotron - Clear, a classic electro track.


I thought I already sent this, but I can't see it in the archives.
Apologies if it's a repeat.
