    Yes that's great service enabled! I remain fan of ISS and ARISS activities. This cross band orbiting repeater surely attracting more hams to try satellite qso, I am regularly making QSO through it. One thing I observed is working ISS Repeater at low elevation is bit difficult with my 5W portable setup, perhaps receiver squelch is set on higher side - things needed to check! In good elevation it perfectly works fine for me.
    Long live ISS & all the Radios in the service!

    I have used Orbitrack for years on my iphone and just brought up the ISS on it, looks like this app will serve as my source very well.

    Working a plan to get my eggbeater back up this weekend and give it a go. I run hamclock using the Pi with a 10" monitor off to one side so I can track ISS 24/7. Goods link for that is KM4ACK


    Just hook up a gps dongle and install it and your good to go. I tend to use my monitors for other things so that little stand alone has been running months continuously.

    It was either free or a one time fee. I have had it quite a while and don't remember. I was able to hear a couple of stations during the pass about 45 minutes ago but was unable to make a contact. So at least I know the track is good.
