    From the APRS Reflector...


    Alex Rodrigues, PT2VHF in Brazil informs us that a Ham radio Team left
    Argentina on 29 APril for a 2 month cross continent Rallye to arrive in
    Alaska after 2 months. They have APRS and will try to report their
    position via ISS. Look for the call ZZ2KKL as they move northward.




    Details in Spanish are on:

    We only have a minute or so as ISS comes above the USA southern horizon
    before the uplink gets jammed, so our southernmost stations need to be
    listening at the horizon... ALex will have his station Igating any
    downlink heard from Brazil.
