I guess the frequency that has been advertised is wrong, have not heard it
here. Was hoping to use the GX4WAB call through the ISS. Not that it counts
for an award.
If no one has any luck finding the frequency I will contact AMSAT UK

I'm with you. I monitored several passes on 437.550 and heard
nothing. But yet an APRS-IS filter of b/RS0ISS* d/ARISS/RS0ISS* shows
that there's some traffic ostensibly from and through the ISS.
