Lots of good information on there Alan, thanks. Another site I just
found is http://www.n2yo.com
I just received a telephone call from a ham in El Salvador who heard
me on the ISS. He was using an old Azden 2 meter mobile with a
discone antenna. He asked me about my station since he's very
interested in getting on at least the FM birds for now. He gave me
the link above. I suggested that he pickup a dual band full duplex
HT, with a handheld antenna (Arrow or Elk), as that would probably be
the easiest and most economical way. So hopefully we'll hear YS1MS,
Jose on the sats soon.
