The ground station had a problem making it to the ISS. The ISS called the ground multiple times.  The astronaut could barely hear them. He said he was catching a few words and their signal was weak. By the time everything was ok, they had 2 minutes for the contact.  From my location, the astronaut only had time to answer 3 questions. 

I recorded the pass. The ISS was very strong.
