I received packets from RS0ISS and KF1BUZ on the 04:03 low pass in DM13hw. The OSCAR status page gives me an error every time I try to post a report.

Wonder why this happened.

Yes indeed. The radio is very configurable.
I really like mine. Thinking about adding the 1.2 gig module.

I noted some menu settings in the radio as well
Cheers thanks for that

Is your membership lapsed? That's what happened to me last year, forgot to
send in the renewal.
>>Elections can be nullified by irregularities.
Issuing duplicate ballots to everyone who claims to have not received their
first ballot is another good way to cause irregularities in the vote. The
ballot comes as an enclosure inside a first class letter with candidate
biographies and registration material for the symposium, it is not sent to you
as a postcard. I have rarely if ever had a first class letter go missing,
whatever you think of our government postal system, they do deliver the mail
99.99% of the time. (And the private UPS company lost one of our boxes of
symposium proceedings last year, which is why some of you did not get your
proceedings book in a timely manner on board the ship.)
Call Martha and see if your membership is current.....

I read this Rocket Lab "post-flight analysis" of the Electron launcher earlier today.
As I came to analysis section about the handling of flight telemetry (not turning ON the Forward Error Correction (FEC) before launch), I had an AMSAT-NA moment.
I remembered Phil Karn, KA9Q at the annual AMSAT-NA Conferences in 1990s ...
pushing that Forward Error Correction (FEC) to be included in future telemetry designs.
The general reception, 20+ years ago was mixed (Why change?), but AO-40 saw its usage.
So after 20 to 25 years ... Rocket Labs has shown that the "human component" continues to exhibit unacceptable failure rates.

I see there are recent entries on ariss.net indicating packets digipeated via the ISS.
Anyone have information on the status of that asset?
I have a good pass later tonight and will certainly give it a try.

Scott, it's been sporadic the last day or so. I'm going to attempt the
00:52z pass myself, see if I can get in.
ISS contact with #YOTA2017 at Gilwell Park, UK will now take place at 2015 GMT (9:15pm BST) on 145.800 MHz FM. Paolo Nespoli IZ0JPA will use the Kenwood TM-D710 transceiver located in the Russian Service Module.
There will be no HamTV as that is located in the Columbus Module amateur station.
You can use the SUWS Online Radio to listen to the ISS downlink on 145.800 MHz FM from anywhere in the world http://websdr.suws.org.uk/
