Currently the aprs system is not working on the iss, because the are 
trying to set up sstv using the same frequencies.
The easiest way to see if aprs is active on the ISS is to look at the 
fundu site http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/ariss/index.cgi
There is an article on www.issfanclub.com that mentions the status of 
the sstv upgrade. That site also has information on the status of packet 
and voice activities.

The sstv upgrade is also mentioned at 
http://www.arrl.org/news/stories/2006/08/22/2/?nc=1
