Re: Beaconing the ISS


Same here. I run a different Aprsisce for ISS and other Satellitte coms. I actually prefer to do it this way.

That's what I did for my D710 for packet mode vs APRS mode, they share the same map directories and NWS files, but the .exe and .xml files are separate.

Profile switching is not near the top of my list.

If you want substantially different behaviors out of APRSISCE/32 (to
work the ISS, for instance), then make a new directory, copy the .EXE
(or set up a shortcut), and configure the new instance. It's not that
hard, especially in comparison to the complexity (and confusion) that I
foresee in the profile switching (like what settings are shared and
which are changed).

Hi Lynn,

This was a good reminder... I occasionally flip my radio to the ISS
frequency, but without changing all the bazillion options to properly
operate through Satellites. I believe you have a profile switch of
sorts on your to-do list, right? Before I invest time and space (no
pun intended) in cloning my APRSIS/32 instance (per the instructions
on the Wiki), how close to the top of your queue is the enhancement
for a Terrestrial / Space (or whatever profiles) configuration option?

*Subject:* [aprsisce] Beaconing the ISS

Got interested in ISS the past few days and decided to see if I
could "Beacon" the ISS or have my signal received and digipeated.
I am using a roof top dual band vertical at about 35ft, an FT 7800
dual band radio, Argent T2 and APRSIS Dev ver last updated
10/6/2012. A few minutes before the start of ISS pass at my QTH,
tuned radio to the ISS packet freq and 145.825. Then got about 8
min of packet bursts and received a number of stations from the
ISS Digi which were Igated at my station. Scanning the messages
log, it appears my msg was ACk, but not sure.

My question is - can I and if so, what steps do I take within
APRSIS to beacon or send my call, position etc to the ISS??

Tnx and 73 Paul kc2nyu
