I heard a little bit of this pass, with the signal absolutely booming in
here in IO75 square.  Then I went outside and realised that my rig
wasn't hooked to the j-pole but to the 6-ele quad, which I'd lowered and
which was lying on the ground under a large hedge...

Seems the ISS is louder than I expected ;-)
