Re: "It's the antenna, stupid!"



Jim and Gang.......

I find it hard to believe that nobody can work ISS with 5 watts.
It is a FACT that I work ISS "regularly" on packet with 5 watts and a J Pole 
antenna. Look at http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/ariss/index.cgi
for the "heard" stations from various locations dumped to the internet.

I see myself listed, and have QSLed over 50 HAMS via ISS with 5 watts and a 
J Pole antenna. Maybe my antenna is special........

Go figure......

******** It does NOT require 25-50 watts to work ISS!!!!!! *********


73 and good luck..... Scott WA6LIE
