Re: ISS amateur radio



Patrick,

Hmmm.....
I have worked ISS and the past shuttles many times.
On the west coast, you hear them calling CQ, as they are
still over water aproaching terra firma.
With you being on the east coast, if they have been active over
here, you will hear QSO's in progress by the time it gets to you.
Sometimes the HAM on ISS or the shuttle will say "next station please"
when he is done with a contact. It is just like working a rare
station in a pile-up. Anything goes, and the strongest
station wins. If you don't want any competition, Hawaii is a good
place to go!

Good Luck to all!

73, Scott WA6LIE
