APRS via the ISS

Hi all,

I have often watched the ISS fly past , it's absolutely beautiful to see!

Looking at the AMSAT pages and information on the ISS active frequencies , I see APRS is operational on 145.825 Mhz simplex. I would like to try and digipeat my APRS position via the ISS using a TH-D7A(g) handheld and hombrew "Arrow" type yagi. Must the path be APRS via ARISS ? The comments on the Internet are sometimes way outdated and possibly no longer applicable?

Radios off for Progress undock

The radios have been powered off in preparation of the Progress undocking.

A new Progress cargo carrier is scheduled to dock to the International Space Station's Pirs docking compartment at 3:25 a.m. EST Wednesday after a launch just after 2:10 a.m. Sunday from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.

The station's 27th unpiloted Progress spacecraft brings to the orbiting laboratory almost 2.5 tons of propellant, oxygen and dry cargo.

While the Expedition 16 crew members wait for the Progress, they have received more than 6,000 greetings from Earth through a link on the home page.

This morning as the main servers appear ot be down I have logged onto the ahubswe server for the UK and even though UI-VIEW confirmed sendinf these packets to the Internet:

Mobile satgate

I've recently been experimenting with igates and satgates to receive APRS packets digipeated via the ISS.

I've devised a mobile set up using a Yaesu FT-8100R and an Open Tracker 2 to act as a digipeater to relay ISS packets on 145.825 MHz to the terrestrial APRS network on 144.800 MHz (or 145.390 MHz in the US).

With three radio memory channels and two profiles on the Open Tracker 2 it can now operate as a mobile terrestrial tracker, mobile ISS tracker, portable terrestrial digipeater or mobile satgate.

Rather than try and explain in on the forum I've added a page to my web page to describe the setup.

ISS and UI-View/AGWTracker

Hi everybody!

I've searched the forum, but did not find anything related.

I want to display and send the ISS position on UI-View or on AGWTracker, but I haven't found the way to do this.

Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!
