  Just before 8p central, or about 00:53Z I stepped outside with a VX-8R

145.825, rubber duck

Too many clouds to visibly see it streak across the sky. Heard 3 
packets, on both the HT and my nearby non-tnc IC-208H on a 5db gain 
antenna on the car roof.

This is what the HT decoded:

A Status packet:
RS0ISS-4  ARISS - International Space Station <BBS/APRS on>

An "Other" packet, no posit
WB2IOL      Radio Kansas City

A quick search:

EM28qx at home (WA2MCT=EL17HQ)

*Call:* WB2IOL *Class:* Advanced
