Re: ISS Repeater




Hi Ron,

I heard you on the ISS repeater this morning, around 17:20z I think.  Nice signal received on my Kenwood D7 HT with a Diamond RH-77B antenna attached.  The second station I heard (I assume it was Jeff, but don't remember the call sign) was actually a bit stronger, but I expect it was just the position of the Station relative to me (CM98).

I was out on a walk with my wife, so couldn't try to get back to you.
