    Is a cross band repeat radio needed to listen?

    Search the Google Play Store for the app "ISS Detector" Excellent app not only for the ISS but other amateur radio satellites as well.

    All you need to listen to this signal is a radio that will receive 437.800 MHz FM. KG8ZQ Jerry

    Very good news for the ISS users so my question its possible now the connection with the PMS system its very necessary in order to make contacts outside of the footprint best regards to all from Cuba. Noel

    I believe the message system has been removed entirely from the new system.

    Question that I don't see in the comments..
    What is everyone using for an antenna? And can you hear traffic with a regular mobile or HT rig?

    Thanks

    Yes.

    If you plan on working it, you'll need a directional antenna for best results (most use Arrow IIs or Elks). With a decent pass (low usage, good elevation, polarities match up), you should be able to do it with a standard HT whip, as well. I haven't tried it, but I've seen reports of some that have been successful.
