Use the D710G to send APRS beacons. The radio will display MY PACKET when it hears the digipeated packet and you can verify it is from ISS by pressing the LIST button and looking for RS0ISS.

I am adding the ISS APRS space communications to the Pine Mountain Observatory STEM workshop this summer.
Using the Kenwood TM-D710G with a PC I can show that the packet sent to the ISS was digipeated through the ISS.
I would like not having to use a PC with the radio. Therefore, not using a PC is there a TM-D710G setting that will show that the beacon was successfully digipeated through the ISS?
QST February 2016 review of the Yaesu on page 52 “ Whenever my FTM-100DR transmitted a beacon and detected that it had been relayed by a digipeater, I hear a series of three descending tones."
Has anyone used the Yaesu FTM-100DR APRS with the ISS and confirmed that it will tell you that the ISS digipeated the packet?
http://aprs.fi http://aprs.fi/ and http://ariss.net http://ariss.net/ work fine if another station receives the packet and forwards it to the APRS Internet System. This depends upon another station which fine for a back up verification.
