Been trying for a few days with a less than optimum setup, and UISS5.2.8

I've been watching the ARISS.net page and see my callsign, so I click on it and see raw APRS Data on findU.com:

Position of W3UTD --- 11.7 miles southeast of Huntingdon, PA --- Report received 19 minutes 13 seconds ago
Status: 271239zUI-View32 V2.03

Raw packet: W3UTD>CQ,RS0ISS-3*,qAR,K3AS:=4021.15N/07752.30W-Fraser in Harrisburg, PA, FN10bi

Does that mean I made it to the ISS?

W3UTD – Mon, 2012 – 02 – 27 18:36

Yes, contact was made.

Yes it does. The asterisk in the callsign RS0ISS-3* shows that this was the station that digipeated the packet, so the ISS received your packet and retransmitted it.

I'd suggest saving the data. You can also send for a QSL card, although just to be sure you might want to try again and see your packet digipeated directly before doing so (see the QSL section ).

Contact via

Looks like your packet was successfully relayed via the ISS. Here are some explanations for some of the data.

W3UTD>CQ, -->your callsign
RS0ISS-3*, --> * indicates relay station heard by IGATE
qAR,K3AS -->ground station hearing and relaying (the IGATE).

I decoded two packets via iphone tonight at 19:25 as the ISS passed over.
Both had your call in them along with several others.

congrats on your contact.
