Hi Adrian, thanks for the date and link,
I will be from time to time in the ISS packet passes, will be more often
as we approaching the FD date.
I will be mainly in non-work hours (from aprox 2000Z-2300Z to 0040Z) and
weekends, is anyone want to tests his setup with me prior to FD just
drop me an email...
Last couple of passes I try to work with the ericsson radio feel like
less responsive/sensitive, I think it's for the less power from the ISS.
Working conditions here is a J-pole for 2m with AH LDF-4 low loss coax
to the radio and 20W, software Soundmodem from Thomas Sailer in Ubuntu
12.04 and Xastir.
