Bob, I copied... packets off of ISS last night around midnight... [using]
my D7A(G) on the floor... [with] the volume [set] to wake me up.  Around
midnight I heard packet and proceeded to copy half a dozen packets from
ISS using nothing more than my HT with it's stock whip! [inside my house]

Bob,   No problem getting into the station using 5W from a TH-D7(G)
(internal battery) and a 1/4 wave ground plane mag mount on my deck.
