I also tried to make my first contact through it. I successfully sent a message to the digipeater for another ham, but he didn’t receive it from the ISS. He did however receive one of my beacon packets and you can see me on his map.
The “Programming TH-D72 for ISS Digi” video will be uploaded next week.
I made this recording on November 2nd, 2016, shortly after the UHF digipeater was activated.
The music at the end is Cybotron – Clear, a classic electro track.
Thanks for watching!
73, John Brier KG4AKV”
