I’d be very interested to hear the result of your attempt(s).  I’ve tried a couple of times with poorer gear (HT and a twinlead slim-jim!) and I was able to read a few QSOs as a satellite passed overhead here.  

I wouldn’t want to do that very often: no squelch, full volume, barely audible signals, but I could hear it … and that was all I wanted to know.

Please report back with how your configuration worked.
