Thanks to Doug Cook, KD5PDN and Oscar Staudt, WB5GCX for details about this event.
I've posted details of my tape rule antenna construction and successful APRS contact with a flyover of the International Space Station.
I used our Logan County Scouting "club" callsign of WB5BSA and posted the url of www.troop850.com up there. Somewhere there a just a few bytes of us on the ISS.
Hopefully my link works below. Google + is still new but offers better blog-like posts than what I could do with FaceBook.
Let me know if you have trouble viewing. If so, here's the YouTube video of the experience with tips.
A surprise contact was made during the encounter. Clayton Coleman W5PFG was on an OA campout near Palestine TX and sent us a message after recognizing our callsign.
He was using a small radio and an arrow antenna along with a PC and typed a message which got back down to me. I didn't realize it until after the flyover was over. The text is on the video. We contacted each other by email and will be sending QSL cards.
