Why are we only receiving digital signals from ISS

We have been trying to contact the ISS on voice for weeks now. The only thing we get back for sound is digital noise. How do we get the ISS to talk to us on voice?

School contact and ARISS resource CD

Hi, everybody,
I am trying to help a local school to apply for a school contact with ISS. Well, AFAIK, this could be the 1st attempt from a Chinese HIgh school. This school is equipped with a club station and is activate on HF and local V/U bands. However, nobody here is experienced with ARISS. We'll be really appreciated if some of you can share with us your story, suggestion, or direction on application of an ARISS operation. Meanwhile, I tried to order a copy of ARISS resource CD from AMSAT, but it seems that it has been out of stock. So anybody can share us a copy?

The return coming from packet mode was very short!

The return coming from the packet mode was very short. Whats going on
on the ISS with the ham radio? Have they forgotten to switch it in the
packet mode again, or? After the arris school contact the packet mode is
still. The payload sat PCSat2 gave by some passes a sig from it, and one or
two stations work by PCST2.

I hope that the packet mode is coming back earlier than before (Soyuz TMA7 reentry).
That was a long time too what we all have wait for the packet signal again.

Nice weekend, with the waiting for the sig from the ISS.
