Help with APRS to ISS

Greetings all..

I am new to working APRS. I am seeing conflicting info about uplink and downlink freqs for ISS digipeater. Is it 145.825 up/down? I am seeing some things list 145.99 uplink. I hear the ISS and decode it fine on 145.825.

Second question- I am running UISS pro with the path set:
to: APEG02
via: RS0ISS-4

Is this correct? I am also running a satgate connected to the net. Can I still run the satgate while trying to digi through the ISS at the same time?

Thanks so much for the help!

Looking for recording of 5/24/2012 ISS contact

Does anyone have a recording of the 5/24 contact. The contact was at 10am Arizona time between the ISS and Northland Prep. Academy in Flagstaff Arizona. I was the radio operator and made a recording directly from the mixer at the school. Unfortunately the recording was lost due to a technical issue.

73, Ken

Does the ISS still do SSTV?

Transmitting to the station ISS

I KF7ENT tried transmitting to the international space station yesterday not knowing really what I was doing . I have a little handheld that puts out 4watts I don't think it is making the trip to the sation when transmitting. Who knows ? would really like to say hello to the crew and would feel very honored if I could do so . I recently received my technician class license and have been enjoying the few contacts I have made so far. I live in Boise and would like to meet another operator. If anyone can lead me in the right direction please let me know ok. My e-mail

QSL info on PI9ISS

As many of us know by now, André Kuipers has made some QSO's using PI9ISS call.
I have some information to share on how to obtain a QSL card.

The card probably will be designed by a ESA/ESTEC Noordwijk person for those who logged a QSO with André PI9ISS.

To get a QSL from PI9ISS please send your QSL-card with a SASE to

A. B. M. Hüsken PE1KEH
Kampakker 24
5625 VG Eindhoven
The Netherlands

Bertus PE1KEH voluntered to act as a QSL manager for PI9ISS for André's 6 month mission.

But please keep in mind it will take some time before any cards are sent out to you.

Digipeater offline?

Anyone have any insight or theories on why the digipeater hasn't been active the last couple of days?
