Re: ISS repeater


Sounds like a lot of activity there!
Not too many here on the west coast yet.
This next pass should cover most of the USA.

I did some tests on the previous pass at 0130 UTC here, and found
that my 440 10DB gain vertical worked BEST on the uplink.
I also had a very high gain horiontal antenna that did not work.
Another horizontal antenna did not work.
I was using 35 watts. Not sure how a HT will do, but an Arrow
antenna would be a good thing to use. Forget the rubber duckie on transmit.
It sould work good on receive anyway!
So far, vertical gain seems to work.

Good luck to all!

73, Scott
