This morning, I returned back to using APRS to connect to the International Space Station. I reconfigured my Kenwood TM-D710 to send and receive APRS packets from the ISS on the 145.825 MHz APRS frequency. This frequency has been used as the universal APRS packet channel for most of the newer Amateur Radio APRS satellites since about 2007.
