Hi Gordon,

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.
