BBS Setup (Receive Only)

Hi group- I need advice on setting up my BBS system. I want to receive BBS exchanges but not necessarily transmit. I acknowledge the problems with tying up the system for other users.

Do I need a TNC or will AGWPE-Pro be okay? Is the BBS option inside UISS sufficient to send BBS Messages?

Sorry for the basic questions; I can send and receive APRS traffic okay, but time now to expand my system capabilities.

Thanks in advance,

Advice needed

Hi fellow iss fan,s I have held my uk foundation licence for just over a year
I have and still do love working HF QRP.
I now am looking to expand my horizon and start to work the many Amateur radio satellites
I have two transceivers I can use the first is the very sort after Yaesu FT-847 EarthStation.
And my second transceiver is the new Yaesu FTM350. I have already put this to some use having made a few confirmed contacts Via The RS0ISS APRS Message Board system.
I was so pleased with my first APRS contacts more so when I received Eqsl card confirmation.

Newbee to ISS packet - Taking suggestions

Hello to all. I am new to packet radio, and I've been trying to learn how the ISS works.

I spent the weekend logging in to my own box, and I was pretty good at it, but I've found that the ISS is way too busy for me to attempt that right now.

I read a few sites on how to do the UNPROTO to ARISS, and so I tried that out, today.

ARISSAT-1 Video of audible pass.

Yesterday I had the opportunity to listen to a pass of the ARISSAT-1 amateur radio satellite on 145.950 Mhz and a colleague was able to help make a video of the pass. ARISSAT-1 is a Hamsat that was released from the International Space Station on August 4th of last year and will soon be re-entering our atmosphere and will burn up on in the coming days.

I placed the video on YouTube.

Please feel free to have a look if you wish.
