Re: best antenna



The answer you look for is any antenna that works well for you. For me, a
Ringo Ranger II coupled to a Yaesu 2400 works just fine at 5 watts. Other
satellite enthusiasts use rotatable yagis with azimuth and elevation
controls. Advantage: greater overall range to ISS. Disadvantage: cost. :-)
