Unfortunately, 70cm UHF doesn't lend itself to unattended SatGate
operations like 2m VHF does. I tried catching the ISS on UHF and only
managed to hear, but not decode, one packet burst. I can't imagine
anything short of a full satellite station with automatic
azimuth/elevation control would capture many packets right now.
