The ISS does not have a dedicated amateur beacon. It operates in a variety of modes, with the most common being packet and voice with two meter downlinks on 145.825 and 145.800, respectively. See this link for more detailed info:
and this one for relatively current status:
When it is active, it is loud, easily heard on an HT, though of course a real antenna is better. Due to various operational requirements, it is often QRT.
As for SATPC32ISS, basically it just requires the same serial link as the regular program. Are you using an IC-910? In earlier versions you needed a jumper on the ACC socket, but as of version 12.8a that is no longer required.
Need a little help with ISS Was under the impression that ISS had a beacon, but have not been able to locate the frequency.
To use ISS satpc32 I believed it was mentioned that some sort of a hand shake between the program/radio/computer was necessary. Can someone provide what has to be done.
Thanks to anyone who can help me.
