ISS over Senegal

In response to the comment about ISS not being very active over Africa (Senagal)...

1) Do you mean that packet is only heard once every 1 minute?
If so, that is because no ground stations are sending packets via the ISS and only the beacon is being transmitted.

2) Do you mean packet not heard at all?
If so, the crew has not been keeping it on all the time for unknown reasons and you just got the short end of the deal.

3)Do you mean that no crew is on voice?
