Re: ISS Repeater sensitivity



Some of the discussion on the AMSAT-BB is reviewing this. Bob's response seems most applicable to your comment. http://www.amsat.org/amsat/archive/amsat-bb/48hour/msg61482.html
 
I have had good results using 5 watts into a ANLI telescoping vertical or an Arrow antenna.

Greetings from Patrick N2OEQ

I recall a response to an inquiry some time ago that the D700 recieve squelch is turned up all the way when configured for crossband repeat. I tried a vertical and 30 watts up with little success. Now I am using about 25 watts into a homebrew 7 element UHF beam fro the uplink with intermittent success. It might only be my rig but I noticed the iss recieves a little low ( considering doppler compensation too)

A million thanks to all who made the recent operation possible.
