I'M still using RS0ISS-4 145.800 simplex but on some ISS passes  i can hardly hear it. sigs are too week to 
be decoded. I remark also i can start to copy sigs from a near maximum elevation point until LOS.

On the 0447 and on the 0623 pass this morning i was unable to decode anything (can hear sigs) 
On the 0759 i got the following frames:

I was guessing it was my antennas pattern who was in problem due to an elevation/attitude iss antenna 
pointing towards my station.  But this morning ISS 2 first passes where at 23 and 43 degrees and the 0759 at 
36 degrees (all max elevation points at about near the same azimuth points). Is it possible they switched 
between antennas up there?
