Worked the iss cross band repeater this morning for the 1st time in L/V mode and was able to open the repeater on the last 3 passes.
I could hear myself very well on the down-link , I used manual Doppler correction on the up-link in 5kc steps and worked ok.
Many thanks for the reports that have been sent to me from dl7et and ea4bgh and the 2 qso I had with Dave g8oqw who I could hear for 98% of his overs with his 10 watts and 19 elements on a tripod.
Kenwood TS 2000X
65 watts at the antenna end,
2 x 23 element tonna antenna stacked
And one hell of a cold night to go up on the roof to alter my 23cm troppo system to go on the elevation rotator, but I had to give this a go!.
