When they ran U/V I was able to get in quite successfully with my 70cm HT and a simple Yagi, and receive my own signal with the 2m set in the car.  Unfortunately, the ISS had been boosted to a slightly higher orbit which put everyone else wrong - the computer-controlled tuning and aerial steering systems were looking in the wrong part of the sky, at the wrong time, and transmitting on the wrong frequency.

Chalk another one up for the Armstrong Rotator then ;-)
