This morning at 10:44 JST there was a very high ISS pass during which I
was able to record the commemorative Tomsk transmissions on 145.800 MHz.
FUNCube Dongle Pro + and a VHF/UHF discone.


Unfortunately most of the pass was marred by QRM from other satellite
operators calling each other, and attempting to call the ISS, on the
same frequency. Luckily I was able to hear most of the English version
of the recorded announcement at the very end of this pass, so it wasn't
a total loss.

The next pass over my QTH will not be until late tonght when the
transmissions will already have concluded, so this is as close as I'm
going to get.
