I believe VK7HSE has a satgate running, I got gated by him a few times
while portable in VK4.
The other point is, the digipeater is on a satellite - you'll be heard by
satgates on the mainland without a trouble :-)

I've heard some packets from PSAT [1], but I don't know how easy it is to
work compared to the ISS. My guess would be harder. Dunno about PCSAT or
whatever else is out there.
ISS would definitely be the easiest, and can just barely be worked from a
handheld antenna.
