    Great stuff! I've been listening to the traffic on the cross band repeater when the station passes my qth. Downlink is 437.800 MHz and uplink
    is 145.990, tone 67 Hz. Five minutes of fun! 73 KG8ZQ, Jerry.

    When a station is within the footprint of the ISS, it may be possible to contact another station that is in the same footprint. I use www.n2yo.com to track and observe the ISS and other satellites. Additionally there are applications one can use on their phone, or computer programs as well.

    Here is a snapshot from the N2YO.com website that is displaying the footprint of the ISS. In this example, someone in Miami Florida, U.S.A could talk with another operator in Quito, Ecuador and or Caracas, Venezuela, etc. 楽しいです

    Photo confused me with the space shuttle in the background


    I have heard the ISS on many passes/ sounds like it's working good and there's definitely a lot of activity.
    Something that was needed a long time ago

    Any orbital prediction apps available for Android?
    I heard I.S.S once, made one contact with WD9EWK, Pat, then a second tried, but never made connection.
    Nothing heard since..

    [QUOTE = "KA9UCE, post: 5602522, member: 36626"] Algum aplicativo de previsão orbital disponível para Android?
    Eu ouvi ISS uma vez, fiz um contato com WD9EWK, Pat, depois tentei um segundo, mas nunca fiz a conexão.
    Nada mais ouvido desde.

    APP ISS DETECTOR

    I use AmsatDroid Free. ISS Detector is another good app. The free version tracks just the ISS, and the Pro version tracks other satellites.

    Since the late night/early morning passes became evening passes here in Arizona, things are a lot busier. Harder to get through, and many times you need more than 5W to be heard. Since pass times are always shifting, there will be other chances to work the ISS repeater with HT power levels.
