Well after some frantic construction last night and this evening I have got
my old trusted Cushcraft 14810S and 719B mounted on a cross boom angled up
apprx. 30 degrees and tilted to 45 degrees between H and V.

I see from here ISS will be up in just a few minutes and SO-50 shortly
thereafter so going to give them a try to see if I can (A) hear them better
than before, and (B) Try to make my first ever satellite contact.

Well, here goes nothing. . .
