I had a chance to talk to Mike from the ISS on Saturday for 7-8
I was the only station at the time (3 AM..) During the pass I tried
to adjust to minimum power
and my pre-amp on and off. My feeling is that 5 W is not enough to
keep the ISS squelch open.
The pre-amp made a difference on low elevation. I used 25W, 120 FT
LMR 400 coax, 4 element Yagi on 48ft tower,
automatic AZ/ EL and automatic doppler with SatPC32.
