>> ISS   145.825  ARISS | APRSAT | WIDE

Yes, probably

Yes.  They are all aliases except for WIDEn-N.  And
unfortunately, ID is not enabled so that WIDEn-N packets do NOT
get callsign-inserted.  Without the callsign-insertion, then the
packet will not make it to the www.ariss.net web page.

That is why using ARISS is recommended.
