Question


I'm going to try to contact the ISS, in the next day or two.

What would you say is the proper protocol for contact?

I've heard people calling CQ, and I have heard others saying QRZ (You are being called by....)

Which is the proper way, or the one that is used most?

Thank you

~Brian (KG6EAK)

I called like every call,
NA1SS, this is Kd0FQX EN00 (grid) Mobile (cause I was mobile at the time). Cmdr confirmed my call. Then I cleared.
I wouldn't call CQ to NA1SS because you are trying to contact a specific station.

what are the frequencies they are using or what do we want to monitor?? I never tried either but my kids have wanted to do it since they have been licensed and I figured we could go ahead and just get it done

That's a negative. You may be confusing me with someone else.

Downlink is 145.800 and uplink is 144.49

It is a challenge, You will have no problem hearing the ISS "loud and clear" as Col Wheelock puts it. Its getting through all the competition most of the time. I am fairly sure they only run one mode at a time so if you hear packet traffic on 145.825, there probably won't be voice contacts
