When is voice mode active?

Excited to discover the possibility of contacting ISS staff! However i can not figure out if and when voice mode is active. When satellite approaches i can hear the packets on 145.825 and i use them as reference for satellite reception. Then i switch over to voice uplink, 145.200,and listen on downlink, 145.800 here in Europe. I have attempted to call several times but no response,i transmit portable on my yaesu 8900 with 50w. Maybe i can be lucky on repeater voice mode (437.800, 145.800) or repeater with PL 145.990 ENC?73

Yaesu FTM-100DR Digi Path

Hello there

I have a Yaesu FTM-100DR, with APRS working quite well terrestrially.

As I understand, to work the ISS, the digi path on the radio needs to be set to ARISS. Unfortunately, the only settings available on this radio is "OFF", "WIDE1-1" and "WIDE1-1, WIDE2-1". According to the owner's manual, there should be options to select PATH 1 to PATH 4, FULL 1 of FULL 2, so that the address can be manually entered. However, this seems to be missing from the APRS menu in the radio.
